Mobile Vision Program Spotlight

Shamira, Jezebel and Julious

Vision problems in children occur most often during the middle school years. For this reason, QueensCare has worked with the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) since 1999 to provide an on-site school vision program to select middle schools where 75% or more of the students qualify for the federal free or reduced lunch program. This year alone, the Mobile Vision Program visited 29 middle schools and two Catholic schools, where screenings by the school nurse and an eye exam by a QueensCare optometrist, resulted in more than 2,100 prescriptions for glasses, all provided free to the students. 

“We are doing much better in school and love reading”

Mobile Dental Program Spotlight


Eight-year old Jacob Lalin is an active child who first came to our program when his father, Alex Lalin, responded to an email about free dental services available on the White Memorial Hospital campus where he works. While the family had medical insurance through Alex’s employer, but they did not have dental insurance, so he and his wife, Adelaida, made an appointment for the children to be seen.

“I smile all the time now.”
