Essilor Vision Foundation in conjunction with the PGA TOUR/ Tour funding is looking for OD's to provide refractive eye exams for children at six different Title 1 schools in Duval County. These are students that normally will not be able to otherwise afford vision correction on their own. The Mobile Vision Clinic will be here in Jax from Sept 29th to Oct 2nd. The van has two lanes in it and we are in need of a second OD for the four days. Any half days, full days or more are needed. Approximate hours will be from 8:30 am to 4 pm each day. Compensation is $75 per hour. If interested please contact Dennis McCarthy - 904-607-9233 or Marina Patino at Essilor at 214-755-5728 for more details.
