Shauna and Javier told us about providing eye exams and eyeglasses for the needy under a partnership between the County Government, INOVA Lions Eye Clinic, local eyeglass companies, and several local Lions Clubs. The partnership has been in work for a year now with some good results. Fairfax Lions Club has a robust eyeglass program for the needy, and utilizes County resources to assure qualified persons participate.  Persons considering this resource should apply thru the County Health Department.
