VISION CARE FOR HOMELESS PEOPLE are seeking volunteer optometrists to perform eye tests for homeless people in Leeds.
The clinic runs on either a Monday or Wednesday from 9.30AM to 2.30PM at St. George’s Crypt Homeless Centre. Volunteering just a few times a year is a great help.
Vision Care for Homeless People runs opticians services within homeless day centres across England providing tests and glasses free of charge for anyone who is homeless, vulnerable or without means. Homeless people are particularly disadvantaged when it comes to obtaining sight tests, glasses and eye care. They suffer a higher level of eye problems than the general population, are prone to losing or breaking their glasses and can find high street opticians difficult to access.
