One of the sites of free vision screenings offered as part of a metro-area interfaith initiative has changed, organizers said.

The screenings will be offered to the public on Saturday and Sunday as part of the Beyond Coexistence community service initiative sponsored by the Interfaith Alliance Foundation of Oklahoma.

Sabi Singh, president of the Interfaith Alliance, said the screenings are being offered in partnership with the Health Alliance for the Uninsured and the Dean McGee Eye Institute. He said the screenings are designed to help the elderly and uninsured.

Singh said the St. Charles-McAuley Health Clinic will not be a screening site as originally planned. Instead, free vision screenings will be offered from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at Mid Del Community Health Center, part of Bryant Avenue Baptist Church, 4748 S Bryant.

Other screenings set for 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday are: Lighthouse Medical Clinic, 2801 S Robinson; Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City’s mosque, 3815 N St. Clair; Mount Triumph Baptist Church, 1716 Abram Ross; and City Rescue Mission, 800 W California.

Screenings also will be offered from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday at the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City’s mosque and Mount Triumph Baptist Church.
