In August 2016, The Saigh Foundation awarded $6,950 to ARCHS in order to expand vision care for underserved St. Louis children this school year. The Saigh funds purchased one Spot Vision Screener so that Kids Vision for Life – St. Louis (KVFL) and its vision health partners can now more accurately screen for eye disorders and also screen children less able to read.
KVFL serves un/underinsured children in 12 local school districts through an effective school-based model that delivers free, comprehensive vision care via a mobile clinic van. Since September 2009, KVFL has proudly prescribed more than 12,000 pairs of eyeglasses for students who otherwise would not have easy access to vision health resources. The success of KVFL and its mission to serve these children depends on financial support from donors.
