BOZEMAN, Mont. -

The VSP mobile eye care clinic made its way to Bozeman Tuesday morning. The mobile clinic was stationed in the Pete's Hill parking lot.

An exam chair malfunctioned and forced the clinic to pack up and head out sooner. Eye doctors on-site could not perform exams after the chair would not level with the vision equipment.  

NBC Montana went inside to tour the mobile site. Eye care officials tell us they serviced over 30 people from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

People who turned out received a free voucher that could be used at any eye care office who accepts a VSP plan -- since they could not completely perform the exams Tuesday.

We talked to Operations Manager Lori Fanning, who says eye exams can better detect other health complications.

"Though an eye exam, a doctor can actually detect different medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease."

The mobile eye care serviced up to 30 people Tuesday morning. The mobile clinic travels across the United States, helping people get glasses who do not have a vision health care plan.
