80% of Learning Happens Through Sight

If They Can't See, They Can't Read!

 

Detection

Only ~31% of kids between 6-16 years old have had an eye exam! Screenings are key for helping kids.

 

Prevention

We offer updated screening equipment, training and resources to school districts hoping to improve their accuracy and efficiency.

With your help, we can ensure that every student gets the ocular attention they need to succeed. 

In just two days at my practice, I saw 3 young students with compromised learning due to poor vision:

- A 6.5 year old boy who's been squinting for the last 3.5 years in school

- A 9 year old boy so near-sighted he couldn't see my fingers from 5 ft away

- And a 7 year old girl who eyes water so much when she reads that she can't focus more than 10 min

My fear is that there are many more students than we realize suffering in silence, unable to perform up to their full potential. They need our help!

About 69% of kids have only ever had, at most, a school vision screening throughout their formative learning years. Let us make these screenings more efficient, affective, and thorough to give them a fighting changes at education and success.

With your donation to and support of our charity, we can hit the ground running with updated and standardized eye testing for each and every student!
