      SC Mission offers free eye, medical care in clinic

      COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Residents of the Midlands can get free medical and eye care during a two-day clinic at the South Carolina State Fairgrounds in Columbia.

      Vision services are full for the day but there isn't a wait on medical services. Vision services will be available again tomorrow.

      The South Carolina Mission 2014 scheduled for Friday and Saturday is on a first-come, first-served basis. The hours are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday from 6 a.m. to noon. It is the fourth year the event is being held for residents ages 17 and older.

      No documentation or identification is necessary. The event is designed to meet the critical health needs of the uninsured and underserved, but also aims to connect the patients to a health facility for ongoing care. Registration closes once the maximum capacity for each service is met.
