Vision To Learn was founded to make sure every child has the glasses he or she needs to succeed in school and in life. Its mobile clinics solve the problem by bringing eye exams and glasses, free of charge, to children at schools in low-income communities.

Begin to Build a Relationship

We know you care about where your money goes and how it is used. Connect with this organization’s leadership in order to begin to build this important relationship. Your email will be sent directly to this organization’s Director of Development and/or Executive Director.

Our partnership with Vision To Learn is a natural fit. Vision problems keep children from reaching their full potential academically and in sports. You can’t play baseball without a bat or a glove, and you can’t do your best at school without good vision. We are thrilled to continue to grow our partnership and help many more students in L.A. County and the Inland Empire.

Help Children Get the Glasses They Need to Succeed 

Over two million students don’t have the glasses they need to read a book or see the board. Vision To Learn provides glasses to tens of thousands of children in need every year to help them succeed in school and in life. Using our fully outfitted mobile optometry clinics, we bring the eye doctor right to children in schools in low-income communities. Independent research shows students who received glasses from Vision To Learn significantly improved their math and reading grades. Glasses have become even more important to help students recover from learning losses due to the pandemic. Every gift of $100 provides one child with a vision screening, an examination, and new prescription glasses.
