|Description:||Sight for Students is a VSP charity that provides free vision exams and glasses to low-income, uninsured children. The program operates nationally through a network of community partners who identify children in need and VSP network doctors who provide the eyecare services.
More than 50,000 children each year receive a free comprehensive exam and corrective lenses if needed through Sight for Students. These are children who would otherwise not receive the eyecare and eyewear they need to do their best work in school and perform their best at play.
VSP founded Sight for Students in 1997 and was one of the original commitment-makers to America's Promise, which strives to bring together organizations dedicated to helping our nation's youth.
