Eye Time

The Ronald McDonald Vision Bus made a stop in St. Clair recently as local optometrists donated their time to give free eye examinations to R-XIII students who registered. Here, Edgar Murray Elementary student Abby Cooksey covers her right eye and looks at a chart during her exam. In all, about 50 students in the St. Clair R-XIII School District received new pairs of free glasses through the program and 62 students received the free eye exams. The three optometrists who participated and donated their time were Drs. Christy Hayes, Kimberly Folwarski and Ryan Hill.  St. Clair R-XIII social worker Emily Goyea said she hopes the program can become an annual event in the local school district.
