ChildSight is an innovative school-based vision screening and eyeglass distribution program designed to improve the vision and the academic potential of students living in poverty.
ChildSight strives to "brings education into focus" by offering vision screenings and providing free prescription eyeglasses for students who need them.
ChildSight provides this essential service directly to students within the school setting and eliminates two barriers that often prevent children from receiving the vision care services they need: prohibitive cost and limited access.
ChildSight's trained teams go directly into public schools in our poorest communities. Upon request by a school district, a team travels to the selected sites to provide vision screening, bringing the necessary equipment and the inventory of frames and lenses.
The team tests the students, and those who fail the vision screening are examined by the on-site ChildSight optometrist, who assesses their vision to determine their prescription. Students choose their frames and receive their glasses at their school that same day or within a week, at no expense to them.
