Adventure Vision Brings Eye Care to Children in Rural New Mexico
Friday, April 16, 2021
CARLSBAD, N.M., April 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — In just five counties of rural New Mexico, more than 16,000 children are insured by Medicaid, but only 3% of these children have had an eye exam in the past year because, in these areas, there are not enough providers who offer appointments for children on Medicaid. At Adventure Vision, we are committed to making an impact on the access to care issue. Our mission is to provide vision care to children in underserved areas.
This year, Adventure Vision is setting out to bring vision care to children in the more rural areas of New Mexico. When working with state government agencies, we identified areas of need for vision services for children on Medicaid. We need your help to increase awareness about this program. The next mobile vision appointments are in Carlsbad, New Mexico.
