Eye exam

Free eye exams and prescription glasses to children age 4 through grade 12 will be provided at four St. Louis County Library branches this summer.

The Eye Care Charity of Mid-America will provide preliminary vision screenings in its Mobile Vision Clinic:

  • Friday, June 7, 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Natural Bridge Branch, 7606 Natural Bridge Rd.
