The Pokagon Band Vision Program

The Pokagon Fund and the New Buffalo Lions Club are working
together to provide FREE comprehensive eye exams to children
and adults over 50 in the Harbor Country Area.


The goals and objectives of The Pokagon Fund Vision Program for Harbor Country is to examine, diagnose and treat children and adults with vision and eye health problems providing the best opportunity
for learning, developing and becoming successful, productive
members of our community.

Why You Should Have Your Child's
Vision Checked

 Vision disorders are the most prevalent handicap during childhood. Common vision screenings provided in schools are not diagnostic nor do they lead to treatment, but rather only indicate a potential need for further care. The need for comprehensive vision examinations should not be confused with the need for vision screening programs. Each has a different purpose and generates different results. Good eye health for children is an essential step in the pathway to social, educational, and economic independence and success.

Who is Eligible

Children ages 9 months through 12th Grade and Adults age 50 and older who meet certain income criteria, AND live in the Harbor Country area with the following zip codes are eligible: 49115, 49116, 49117, 49125, 49128, 49129.
