Kirby Puckett Eye Mobile unveiled to public with free vision screening

[WCCO-TV & KSTP-TV, July 16, 2014] The Twin Cities are seeing another benefit from hosting the 2014 All-Star Game. With funding help from Major League Baseball and the Minnesota Twins, the Kirby Puckett Eye Mobile made its public debut Wednesday. The public was invited to go inside for free vision screenings. The eye mobile is named after Twins Hall of Famer whose career was cut short after he was diagnosed with glaucoma.

The eye mobile is staffed by doctors and nurses from Phillips Eye Institute, which is part of Allina Health. It will be set up at locations throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin, helping children and adults get the medical attention they need for their eyes.
