Washington DC Welcomes “SeeMore” the Envolve Vision Van

Date: 2016-11-14

Envolve’s "SeeMore" Vision Van visited a number of local events in Washington DC this past week providing free eye screenings for communities throughout the area.

Envolve, an integrated healthcare solutions company, partnered with local DC organizations to provide communities with the opportunity to have their eyes checked for possible problems and receive a free vision screening and eye glasses, if needed. Patients were able to choose their frames on-site and will receive their glasses by mail.

The "SeeMore" Vision Van made three stops while in Washington DC:

  • November 7, United Medical Center provided a full day of screenings for youth of the community under the age of 18.
  • November 9, The Latin American Youth Center provided vision services for students between the ages of 16-24 from Next Step PCS, LAYC Career Academy PCS, Youthbuild PCS and WISE.
  • November 11 & 12, Mary’s Center Heroes to Care event provided Veterans, Active Duty Service Members and their families the opportunity to receive free vision services.

“We aim to transform the health of the communities we serve, one person at a time,” said David Lavely, president and chief executive officer of Envolve’s vision benefits group. “Proper vision care is important to the whole health of the individuals we serve. Our mobile vision van will bring these services directly to people who might not otherwise have access to quality health care.”

The Vision Van has traveled nationwide offering eye care services to underserved communities since May 2015. The program has helped more than 4,300 people in 15 states since the service began.
