If you or someone you know need an eye exam and new glasses but can’t afford it – today’s the day to head to Seattle Center.
The Seattle Center Foundation and Seattle/King County Clinic are offering free eye examinations and prescription eyeglasses between 7:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. starting Thursday and extending through Sunday.
About a thousand people are expected to be helped during the event.
Licensed healthcare professionals and general support volunteers are donating their time and expertise to the project to provide care to the community and those that can’t afford glasses.
Once the clinic opens, patients are escorted to the service facility and admitted by ticket number to be registered and receive free eye care.
Free admission tickets are required for an exam and are available at Fisher Pavillion, at 2nd Avenue N & Thomas Street.
This is the seventh year Seattle/King County Clinic has held a free clinic at Seattle Center.
The exams happen at McCaw Hall.
