How it Works for Schools

eye care for students

2020 can serve colleges and universities just as it serves companies. We also have a program that brings high-end vision care to local high schools because we know that if children can't see clearly, they can't possibly excel in the classroom. So in 2015, we ran a pilot program with the Boston Public Schools to see if convenient, high-quality, and affordable vision care was needed among students. The results were inspiring.

In 2016, we launched a formal partnership with the Boston Public Schools with mission to serve all of their high schools on a continuing basis. Our impact so far:

  • 13 schools visited
  • 37 on-site visits
  • About 877 students seen
  • 488 glasses distributed
  • 240 pairs of glasses donated

Now also serving Atlanta Public Schools!

In March 2017, 2020 announced that it had also formed a partnership with Atlanta Public Schools to bring on-site eye exams to students. To get a sense of how well it's going, enjoy this tweet from the Assistant Principal of Forrest Hill Academy: 
"We would like to say thank you to 2020 for providing full vision screenings and glasses to our students. We have a large immigrant and urban population and access to vision care is needed but not accessible. Many of these students have just arrived to the US or due to insurance issues could not get this service. Due to the numerous barriers, some students struggled academically because of poor vision. Than came 2020 and many families thought this opportunity was too good to be true. Thank you for treating our students with dignity when they stepped onto your van speaking very little English. Thank you for giving them options for various frames. Thank you for all you do."
