Pre-K Vision Screening

We help students set clear sights on a bright future.

Vision issues can seriously threaten a child's early learning. Roughly 85% of early learning happens visually, but nearly one out of every four children has a vision problem. If unaddressed, these problems can lead to learning disabilities or even permanent vision loss.

Our pre-k vision screening teams help detect vision problems early. Teams are made up of volunteers, trained and organized by United Way.  Volunteers screen local pre-k students for vision issues at their school or childcare center. If our results indicate a possible issue, we refer parents to their healthcare professional.

By working together, we help address vision-related learning disabilities and ensure every child has a strong start in school.

 

KEY IMPACT

Every year, our volunteers screen nearly 3,000 local kids for vision issues.
