The Story of Vision To Learn

Vision To Learn solves a problem affecting as many as 1.5 million children nationwide who lack the glasses they need to see the board, read a book, study math or participate in class. Kids in low-income communities and minorities are disproportionately affected. More than 89% of kids served by Vision To Learn live in poverty and 87% are kids of color.

UCLA Study

Doctors at UCLA conducted an analysis to determine the outcome of Vision To Learn’s mobile vision clinics. They found that providing glasses to young students helped improve the quality of their education and their lives, and helped them attain higher grades.
