Eye Care for Kids

About one in four children need some kind of corrective eyewear. But the need skyrockets for economically challenged communities, where 30 – 50 percent of children go without necessary professional eye care services. The implications of that are tremendous, if a child can't see, he can't read, if he can't read, he can't learn, and if he can't learn, he's going to get in trouble. Sixteen years after the launch of Eye Care 4 Kids, the organization is approaching 200,000 kids with professional eye exams, vision screenings and, if needed, “new, really cool eye glasses.” The nonprofit now has a presence in five states including a family clinic, laboratory, school-based clinics, other community-based clinics and even mobile clinics. Not only do the kids need the services, but we need to take the services to the kids.
