Volunteers are working to make sure that people in Moore have their basic needs met following the tornado.
Tulsa Pediatric Optometrist, Dr. Kathleen Elliott, tells FOX23 that area experts are banding together to provide eye care to tornado victims in need.
In partnership with the Vision Council and the American Optometric Association, the Oklahoma Association of Optometric Physicians has created the Optometry Strong Tornado Relief Project.
A network of optometric providers will assist the storm victims by providing no-cost eye exams, glasses and contact lenses at Graceway Baptist Church in Moore.
"We just want to be able to provide that service for them and let them know what we care and are there to help," said Elliott.
Elliott tells FOX23 that people can experience physical symptoms if they are without their prescription eye glasses for a long period of time, especially children.
"They could have headaches, their eyes could water, itch or burn," said Elliott.
She says that the service will able to tornado victims through Aug. 30th.
