Our vision at Lawrence Family Vision Clinic is to provide world-class eye care using cutting-edge technology and patient education from respected optometrists and a knowledgeable attentive team.
Dr Kenny is proud to participate in TRIO college access programs to help first generation students learn more about the anatomy of the eye. He leads students through cow eye dissections, giving the classroom an unforgettable experience.
Dr Green specializes in pediatrics and is passionate about helping the youth succeed. She visits various schools in the Lawrence and Baldwin areas to work with the Essilor Adopt a School Program. As she performs eye exams on students, she is accompanied by technician Kim, who performs the auto refraction test. Denae, our Optical Consultant and other members of the team help with picking out glasses for the students and making sure they are the correct fit.
In addition to our excellent care, our office supports local organizations like Lions Club International who donates glasses to underprivileged kids and adults. Our office also participates in other local community outreach events to help the Kansas City, Lawrence, and Baldwin areas with health needs.
A child needs many abilities to succeed in school. Good vision is a key. It has been estimated that as much as 80% of the learning a child does occurs through his or her eyes. Reading, writing, chalkboard work, and using computers are among the visual tasks students perform daily. A child's eyes are constantly in use in the classroom and at play. When his or her vision is not functioning properly, education and participation in sports can suffer. Unfortunately, they may have a short attention span that can be interpreted as misbehaviour.
