Vision Voucher Project for Kids Results

Sight & Hearing Association’s Vision Voucher Project for Kids was created in 2002 to help low-income, uninsured and underinsured children in need of follow-up vision care. A vision voucher provides a free eye exam and eyeglasses to a child in need. In 2016, eight out of ten children we screened lived at or below poverty level. Vision vouchers were provided to 1,076 children.
