Our Mission

Eliminating Poor Vision Through Mobile Eyecare Delivery
Providing no cost vision services to St. Louis area students

Kids Vision for Life St. Louis (KVFL) is sponsored and operated by Crown Vision Center, Area Resources for Community and Human Services (ARCHS), and the Essilor Vision Foundation. Kids Vision for Life provides vision screenings, eye exams and new eyeglasses to students in need at no cost to the family through mobile clinics, school systems, central locations and special events.
