Mission

Our mission is simple.  We want every child to get regular eye care as early as possible whether they have vision coverage or not.  We want our future generations to be the very best they can be.

How you can help

​Early Assessment & Intervention are crucial for the future success of young students.  Your generous donation will go to early eye exams, glasses, contact lenses and further education.

Making a Difference

“Any time you have an opportunity to make a difference in this world and you don’t, then you are wasting your time on Earth.”

 

- Roberto Clemente

Why?

We know that with early vision assessment and intervention, we give young students the best opportunity to be successful in the classroom and in life. Statistics show that without early detection of visual problems, and the ability to read at grade-level, a very
high percentage of the population ends up in the juvenile system, prison or on welfare.

75–90% of juvenile offenders have learning disabilities and vision issues

66% of the prison and welfare population couldn’t read at grade level by 4th grade

13% of parents have never taken their kids to the eye doctor

23% of moms say access to vision insurance is the biggest barrier to visiting the eye doctor

Approximately 12.5M school-aged children suffer from an undiagnosed Vision disorder
