Community Events

As a Bronx-based business for 40 years, community is at the heart of our service philosophy.

Metro staff and leadership attend and participate in several events throughout the year to raise awareness of and funds for important local institutions and endeavors. Our leadership team has also been recognized for our contributions to the Bronx community.

Metro Optics supports numerous nonprofit organizations around the Bronx whose missions advance the eyehealth and overall health & wellness of its residents, and their enjoyment of our vibrant borough, as well as initiatives to promote a sustainable environment for local business.

Upcoming Events Calendar

We update our Community Events Calendar (below) regularly, so check back often to see what we've added - here you'll find our free vision screening events, local nonprofit and community events, national Eye Care "holidays," and more!

Vision Screening Events

Over the years, we have provided FREE Vision Screening services* to interested participants at many locales in the Bronx, from schools, to community events, church feasts, Business Improvement District events, nonprofits serving the elderly, and more.

If you’d like to submit a request to have Metro Optics provide a Vision Screening booth at your event, please email at least one month in advance of your event date, and we will contact you to make arrangements.

*Vision Screenings are not a substitute for a comprehensive yearly eye examination
