The average person blinks 12 times per minute, some people are born with two different colored eyes, and doctors have yet to successfully transplant an eyeball. Cool facts, huh? Now’s your chance to learn firsthand more about what’s behind our amazing eyes. Get a tour of an optometrist’s office and try out their professional equipment. Take measurements of a friend’s eye and practice giving the “puff” test.
*For this program students will travel in The Bridge Bus to an offsite location. They will be going to Vroegh Family Eye Care (affiliate of Rosin Eye Care), located at 17322 S. Oak Park Avenue in Tinley Park. Must have ‘Permission to Transport’ indicated on Student Membership Application (check your Student Portal to make sure).
Important Attendance Policy:
Out of respect to our volunteers, please be sure you can attend the programs you sign up for. Confirmation calls or text messages are made 48-72 hours prior to every program. If you do not respond to our confirmation call within 24 hours of the program, a student on the waiting list will fill your spot. If a student is a "no show" for 2 or more programs, they will be automatically placed on the waiting list for other programs they have signed up for during that semester. 48 hours notice is required for all cancellations.
