CLOVIS — Adventure Vision and the Lions Club are partnering to host vision care clinics over four days in March and April at the Matt 25 Hope Center, with a goal of helping children get eye exams in underserved Medicaid markets.

The vision care days will be March 30-31 and April 13-14. The clinic will accept Medicaid or Lions Club Vision Vouchers if the children aren’t covered by Medicaid.

“This year our commitment is to take what we do on the road and go to those areas without access to make a big impact on the kids that need care,” Janelle Shumaker, Director of Community Outreach at Adventure Vision, said in a company release. “When we started talking to community partners about the need, the stories we heard were that families were waiting 5 or 6 months for an appointment with an eye doctor that accepts Medicaid. That is unacceptable.”

Families can schedule an appointment by calling 575-440-0443.
