For more than 40 years, the UCLA Mobile Eye Clinic has supported patient care and screening programs in neighborhoods where poverty and vision disabilities intersect. The dedication and hard work of UCLA Mobile Eye Clinic ophthalmologists, technicians, and volunteers have touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of individuals.
The UCLA Mobile Eye Clinic, a 39- foot-long bus specially outfitted with eye examination equipment, is supported by charitable contributions to the Stein Eye Institute. The UCLA Mobile Eye Clinic’s staff of trained ophthalmic personnel provides general eye care to over 20,000 underserved adults and children annually throughout Southern California. Services include vision screening, ophthalmic examination and refraction, diagnosis of potential or existing eye disorders, treatment of some ocular diseases, and appropriate referral of patients who need additional care.
