What we do:

Screen vision for ages six months to seven 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.
