Small Solutions,
Big Impact.

One in five students struggle with vision issues. Eye health impacts learning, education, and is a key indicator of future success. Identifying issues early provides a simple solution to much larger issues.

That’s where you come in. You provide the care and knowledge they need to thrive.

We’re on a mission to help the littlest of us be ready to learn with healthy vision. Help us spread the word about the assistance offered through the See to Learn Program.

Help us make sure every child can see to learn and grow.

Children's Vision Initiative Grants

One in five children entering kindergarten each year will have a vision problem that may affect his or her ability to learn. By high school graduation, this number climbs to more than 30 percent. Many of these learning-related vision problems may hinder a child’s ability to perform to his or her academic potential and could lead to self-esteem issues and behavior problems.
