On November 18, 2016 there will be another doctor visit in room E107 for students who need an eye exam. If you are interested in signing up for the doctor visit you can sign up by registering on an iPad in room E107, using a Google form referral. According to Ms. Vega, a former East High student in the Vision Care Program who is now an assistant teacher for the program, you will be able to get your pair of glasses in about two days.
The Vision Care Program started over the summer of 2010 starting with eight students who needed glasses, and it then became a full course in the year of 2012. “It is very fun getting to work with kids, and going to different schools,” said a student in the program.
Whenever you see students walking around school with a light pink shirt, feel free to stop them and ask when you can sign up. For more information about the Vision Care Program stop by E107 and speak to Mr. Newman. You can be part of the Vision Care Program by having the class or talking to your counselor.
