Vision Health Fair Funded by Alcon

The Vision Health Fair was the product of a grant that was funded by Alcon and awarded to the Health Science teachers at Ben Barber. This $20,000 grant included eye exam charts, eye models and ophthalmology equipment that is being used in the clinical skills classes to teach students about the parts of the eye as well as how to assess visual impairments. The Vision Health Fair was a free event serving families of Mansfield ISD and was held in the spring of 2012 and 2013. Alcon, Essilor Foundation, Kids Vision for Life and the Lions Club participated in the health fair and screening. Glasses were made on the spot for students that needed vision help.
