Vision Van July 19


Bossard Library is pleased to announce that the Vision Van will be returning to visit the Library on Friday, July 19, 2024.

This mobile vision van will provide FREE vision screenings, eye exams, and, if needed, new prescription glasses to youth ages 4-18 (still attending school).

Appointments are REQUIRED to visit the Vision Van and can be made starting July 2, 2024. Residency in Gallia County is not required.

To make an eye appointment, a parent/legal guardian will need to register each child on-line and complete two forms (the Vision Van registration form and the Library's waiver) for each child

Please CLICK HERE to register.

Need glasses only? Please call Lynn (ex. 229), Debbie (ex. 235) or Amber (ex. 233) to register.

These two forms are listed below for you to print out and complete. These forms are also available to pick up in person at the library's Circulation Desk.

In order for the registration to be complete, these two forms need to be returned to the Library by 8:00 PM on Monday, July 15, 2024.

If the forms are not returned by Monday, July 15, 2024 the child/children will be dropped from the registration list.

Please note that similar to when going to a regular doctor appointment, there may be a wait time before the child/children are seen by the doctor on the day of the Vision Van visit. We ask that you please be patient as the appointments are completed. 

Provided through a unique collaboration between the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio, the Ohio Optometric Foundation, and the non-profit provider Vision to Learn, the goal is to provide students with a guarantee of clear vision in order to help them learn.

Students with untreated vision problems often struggle at school, and are less likely to achieve reading proficiency by third grade, putting them at greater risk of dropping out.

Bossard Library is happy to help in bringing this much needed service to students and families in Gallia County.
