Better Vision for a better tomorrow.
Children need healthy vision to succeed in school
For many children living in Milwaukee’s most impoverished neighborhoods, a clear path to a promising future can at times seem a bit blurry. Access to a quality education is crucial for escaping the cycle of poverty. For too many kids, uncorrected vision problems are a barrier to a better future.
