The Kansas City Free Eye Clinic
Founded in 2008, The Kansas City Free Eye Clinic provides accessible eye care to the underserved and economically disadvantaged in Kansas City. KCFEC is a nexus between concerned health professionals, organizers, and patients in the community. We provide a broad range of vision services including refractory correction and cataract removal and glaucoma treatments at our referral sites.
KCFEC is an all-volunteer organization under the direction of student officers and other millennials, a unique and award-winning management structure that aims to provide a repertoire of opportunities for leadership and hands-on education.
We need the help of area eye care professionals, opticians, technicians, and other volunteers to increase the number of patients that we can serve. Clinics are typically held Saturdays but can be arranged to match the availability of the volunteer doctor’s schedule.
