in cities across the country to coordinate free comprehensive eye exams,
vision screenings and glasses donations. Eye Care 4 Kids in Arizona
received a $5,000 grant for the local event. This builds on an existing community
investment
in Arizona to improve eye care with VisionQuest

, which showcased its "gamified" screenings at the Alhambra
event.
