MobilEYES Mobile Eye Clinic of Memphis, TN
Southern College of Optometry’s MobilEYES Community Vision Unit was designed to bring eye health and vision care to our community.
Each year, thousands of individuals in Memphis and Shelby County have no access to appropriate care because of transportation issues. MobilEYES helps fill that need. Our MobilEYES unit offers a mobile eyes program with a fully-equipped 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, the MobilEYES mobile eye clinic of Memphis is staffed with eye specialists, including ophthalmologists, opticians, residents, and optometry students. Anyone in need of access to eye health and vision care may be eligible for services.
