In addition to our excellent care, our office supports local organizations like Lions Club International who donates glasses to underprivileged kids and adults.

A child needs many abilities to succeed in school. Good vision is key. It has been estimated that as much as 80% of the learning a child does occurs through his or her eyes. Reading, writing, whiteboard work, and using computers are among the visual tasks students perform daily. A child's eyes are constantly in use in the classroom and at play. When his or her vision is not functioning properly, education and participation in sports can suffer. Unfortunately, they may have a short attention span that can be interpreted as misbehavior.
