Press Release, Lyndonville Lions Club

LYNDONVILLE – The Lyndonville Lions Club wishes to remind everyone in Orleans and surrounding counties that they will be hosting a one-day-only pop-up eye clinic this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the White Birch Golf Club, 1515 North Lyndonville Rd.

The purpose of this clinic is to provide free prescription eyeglasses – both lenses and frames – to everyone who attends. The clinic is open to everyone. No appointment is needed – simply show up. And, except for name, address and phone number, no other information or identification is required.

The clinic is staffed by a team of NY State licensed doctors of ophthalmology and optometry who will determine the correct prescription glasses for each individual. You will then have a wide selection of several hundred pairs of frames available to choose from – both in children and adult sizes – and optometrists will assist in proper measuring and fitting of your chosen frames. The frames are in as-new condition. Again at no charge.

If you, someone you know, a family member, your child or grandchild may be in need of glasses – or if your current glasses are damaged or your current prescription lenses are dated – this is the perfect opportunity to get better vision at no cost.

The clinic is available for everyone ages 5 and older. Those under 18 will require the presence of a parent or guardian. After testing, the eyeglass lenses will be sent out for grinding and insertion into your chosen eyeglass frames. When your eyeglasses are ready, you will be contacted by a Lyndonville Lions Club member that they are ready to be picked up. No gimmicks or strings attached.

The Lyndonville Lions are proud to host this extraordinary event. We remind everyone that this clinic will only be held for one day this year in Orleans County. The clinic will not return again until next year.

“The Lions historical mission centered around sight and vision,” said Darren Wilson, the club president. “Thus, this eye clinic provides our Lyndonville Lions an opportunity to return to our roots and that original core focus.”
