Friends in Sight had a vision screening in conjunction with the Lancaster and Palmdale Lions Clubs on Nov. 16.

Two hundred-twenty patients were seen for the day, of which 35 needed no prescription, 18 needed to be made at the optical lab and 167 received recycled eyeglasses.

Fifty-seven patients received eyeglasses for the first time, 64 patients 18 years old or younger were screened.
