What we do:
Screen vision for ages 6 mo to 7 years. Early detection of amblyopia (lazy) eye and other vision issues can avoid a lifetime of vision and learning problems. Once identified as at-risk for problems we follow up with parents to ensure treatment.
Why we’re great:
We have the highest standards and a very efficient operation. Most importantly we are saving vision for children! Vision loss can mean a lifetime of problems for children and their families. We screened almost 70,000 children last year!
Why does your organization deserve community financial support?
We save kids from vision problems! 80% of a child's learning is visual. Vision issues can also impact physical development, self-esteem and be a lifelong financial burden. A simple and quick screen can improve a child's life! $10 will screen a child.
