Southern College of Optometry’s MobilEYES Community Vision Unit was designed to take eye health and vision care out to our community. Each year thousands of individuals in Memphis and Shelby County have no access to appropriate care because of transportation issues, so MobilEYES helps fill that need.
Our MobilEYES unit is a fully equipped mobile eye health and vision care clinic on wheels, complete with two examination rooms and a fully stocked optical area featuring eyeglass frames for patients to select.
As an extension of SCO’s Clinical Programs, MobilEYES is staffed with eye doctors, opticians, residents, and optometry students. Anyone in need of access to eye health and vision care may be eligible for services.
Check out this short video created for families to learn what to expect when they visit our MobilEYES unit:
If you want to learn more in-depth details about how the program works, we've created an informational video that explains how the MobilEYES program operates:
School-aged children receive care through partnerships with local public and private school districts. (Please note: SCO’s School Screening Program is a separate service). Senior citizens receive care through partnerships with community centers, churches, and other health care organizations.
Care provided includes:
- Vision screenings
- Comprehensive eye health and vision care
- Ophthalmic materials dispensing (i.e. glasses and contact lenses)
- Identification of vision-related learning problems
- Disease diagnosis and treatment
