We're on a mission to perform FREE Vision Screening for the millions of children who we missed in 2020 due to Covid-19.
The year 2020 was challenging, to say the least. One hidden, potential consequence is that early childhood vision health screenings were postponed for millions of children. An estimated 25 million children have now gone for almost two full years without a simple, yet potentially life-changing, vision screening. Additionally, the switch to remote education over “tiny screens” may have caused a surge of children with correctable myopia, which has spiked to affect nearly half of ALL children in recent studies.
“ Is a vision problem tsunami now stalking our children as well? We just don’t know. Only the kick-start in 2021 of children’s vision screening programs will tell us.”
Restarting the FREE Vision Screening Events with Project See Clearly 2021
This is the rationale and urgency for our new, national initiative Project SEE CLEARLY ‘21. We seek to clear the national backlog of children who are way overdue for their next vision screening, and to improve the eyesight of at least 10,000* young children between
August 15th and Halloween to put vision health of our children back on track. Join us in this crusade!
