Learning is much harder if you can’t see the chalkboard. Yet an estimated 2 million students who have correctable vision problems lack access to basic eye care. Vision To Learn, a nonprofit that provides free eye exams and glasses, is changing that for tens of thousands of children. We’re pleased to be supporting their expansion to more cities around the U.S.
Spending the day with Vision to Learn’s mobile units in San Francisco showed us first-hand the impact that simple tools can have for a child. Glasses address a basic need, and can change the trajectory of a child’s education.
