Attention needy friends!! The information given by this site for the Mountain View, California Mobile eye examination bus is totally incorrect. When I inquired I was e-mailed and told that only Los Angles California has this service, nothing like it in Northern California. Please take this info off your site if possible. Now, does anyone know where I can get a free eye exam and prescription eye glasses?
