Our Referral Program aims to ensure each child’s eye care needs are met.  When a child is identified as needing expanded medical care, referrals are made by our optometrists to Medicaid-friendly providers like UMSL Eye Care, SLU Sight Clinic, and WashU Clinic. Information about the health concern is communicated to parents, with the goal of not only educating them on the importance of eye health but also the results of the exam. To ensure this essential specialty care is received, Eye Thrive staff follows up with the parent and provider.
