Project Description

Vision Is Priceless provides free vision screenings for children and adults. Individuals failing the vision screening and who are uninsured and low-income, qualify to receive a free eye exam, glasses, and specialty vision care. Our mission is important because regular comprehensive eye examinations are critical for early detection, timely treatment, and maintaining vision health. Not having access to free quality vision care has implications that go beyond a personís health. For children, they are less likely to succeed in school without proper diagnoses and treatment of vision issues. Experts estimate that 80% of all learning is visual. If a child has undiagnosed vision issues, the effect can be detrimental to their education and future success.
