The mission of Friends for Sight is to work passionately each day to save sight and change lives. We do this by providing free vision screenings, working to ensure that people of all ages and backgrounds have access to quality eye care, and disseminating information about eye safety, threats to vision, and available community resources.
To address our mission, here are ways that we can support you:
If you are looking for a free vision screening, we have open screening hours on Wednesdays at both the Liberty and Glendale Community Learning Centers or by appointment at our Cottonwood Heights office. Please call 801-524-2020 for details.
If you are a school, business or community event and would like our trained volunteers and staff to provide free vision screening, click here and submit your request.
Kindergarten screening certificate
Utah state law requires a certificate of vision screening prior to entering school, which we can help you with. If your child was screened by Friends for Sight, click here to request a certificate or call our office for an appointment for a screening.
Access to quality eye care
Working with a team of incredible, generous eye doctors who volunteer their time, we provide free eye exams and prescription glasses for those who qualify.
