We Just Launched A New Website: Look At Upcoming Events
Vizavance is a unique nonprofit organization in OKC and it’s our aim to help kids here have better vision. We offer absolutely free vision screening for preschoolers in Oklahoma. The best way to treat vision problems in children is to catch them early and our vision screenings help with that.
When identified on time, it becomes possible to fix small vision problems, which in turn can help avoid a negative impact on the child’s academic performance. Vizavance serves 1300 locations throughout Oklahoma.
We conduct free vision screenings for kids at private as well as public schools, day care centers and Head Start Centers in all the counties in the state. We conduct these free vision screenings for children in the 6 months-high school seniors age range. In the 2018-2019 school year so far, 184,183 students have been screened.
We are extremely dedicated to providing these services and conducting free vision screenings OKC in a consistent manner across different settings. Our aim is to ensure that parents are made aware of vision problems (if any) in their children, as this can help them address the problems before they get out of hand.
We have just launched a new website, even more user-friendly than before. You can source information about our services in this space by visiting our site. As a nonprofit, we conduct a number of fundraiser events to support our mission of advancing children’s education through better vision. Some of the events we are conducting in the near future include:
- Luck of the Iris – Sip for Sight, has been Tulsa’s premiere wine, beer & culinary experience since 1991. There are also two superb events each year- the Black Tie Gala as well as a Grand Tasting benefiting our organization. To be held in March
- Belles and Beaus For Sight– To be held in March, this will be beer, wine and food tasting event along with raffles, games and a silent auction.
- Swing For Sight– We will be celebrating our annual golf tournament fundraiser in May. Now in the 44th year, it is slated to be held at one of the top golf courses in the OKC area. The day will be filled with prizes and fun.
- Chic Optique– This annual eyewear show is now held in Tulsa at Twenty Twenty Eyecare. You can purchase cool new sunglasses and join us for a fun-filled afternoon too! Date to be confirmed.
As mentioned, these events help us spread the word about our work and raise funds for our screening services. As a non-profit, these funds are very important for us to continue providing these services in an unhindered manner. It’s our way of making a difference to the communities and children in Oklahoma.
