Vision program


Eleven schools in he Youngstown and Liberty districts will host a team of 13 eye doctors to provide eye exams and two pairs of glasses for each child in need, expected to be 450 students this holiday season. The program is possible due to collaboration among various community organizations, eye doctors, foundations and businesses. Three years ago, Classic Optical, Essilor Vision Foundation, Sight for All United and the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley partnered to provide vision services to 100 children in the Youngstown schools. The partnership expanded for the 2018-19 school year with Akron Children’s Hospital joining the collaboration to provide vital nursing oversight, and adding the Liberty district.
