YAKIMA, Wash.-- A non-profit, low vision eye clinic for people struggling with sight is helping many in Yakima. 

The Vision for Independence center has been open since 2008 and has 2 clinic days a month for people to learn about tools to help improve their eyesight.

Several optometrists from around the area donate their time to the clinic and say it's all about providing independence.

"There's a huge population that are just so grateful. They come in very leery, they leave with smiles," Dr. Dale Graf, an optometrist with Vision for Independence.

The clinic is run off grants and donations and Dr. Graf says no one is ever turned down because they can't pay.
