Mobile Vision Clinic

Bringing Sight to the Children of Tampa Bay

The Mobile Vision Clinic is the centerpiece of the Glazer Vision Foundation’s commitment to providing critical eye care services and resources to children that need it most. Through regular visits the Mobile Vision Clinic brings doctors and eye care specialists, along with an on-site prescription lens lab and a full selection of eyeglass frames to communities throughout Tampa Bay.

We feature one of the most comprehensive vision screening programs in Florida. The Revion BLINQ screener and Welch Allyn SPOT autorefractor is used to determine if a child needs to be referred for a comprehensive eye exam. The BLINQ is the first instrument designed for vision screening programs that accurated detects micro-strabismus and amblyopia. The SPOT accurately detects refraction errors and risk factors for amblyopia. Both devices are used in tandem by our vision health specialists to ensure that we are detecting any vision issues that exist.
