So much of learning is visual, and we understand that long-term educational performance is closely linked to a child's ability to see clearly in class. The issue can be that many students lack access to routine eye exams.

We strive every day to expand accessible vision care for all, so we thought what better way to channel our passion than in our own community.

In 2015, we initiated our first program with the Boston Public Schools to see if convenient, high-quality, and affordable vision care was needed among students. The results were inspiring! 5 years later, we launched "Vision for Boston," where we provided free vision screenings, eye exams, and eyewear to 10,000+ underprivileged children in the month of January alone (at no cost to the students or their families). For some of these students, our visit was their very first eye exam! 

In 2016, we launched a formal partnership with the Boston Public Schools with a mission to serve all of their high schools on a continuing basis. So far, we have visited more than 30 Boston Public Schools, at least 30 on-site visits per year and have seen over 1,000 students. 

In 2020, we expanded our partnership with Boston Public Schools through “Vision for Boston,” our largest philanthropy initiative to-date. In the month of January, we:

  • Made 22 full-day visits to schools

  • Provided access to free vision screenings, eye exams, and eyewear to 10,000+ underprivileged children

  • Dispensed 400+ glasses to students

For many of these students, our visit marked their very first eye exam.
