SEE TO LEARN

What is SEE TO LEARN?

SEE TO LEARN is an innovative, three-step preventive health program designed to ensure that kindergarten children entering school can see to learn and to educate parents and teachers about the warning signs of vision problems in all school-age children.

Step 1: Alerting parents and educators about the signs of vision problems in children of any age.
Step 2: A FREE vision assessment for your three-year-old by a participating Eye Care Council optometrist.  This is designed to detect vision conditions that require correction at an early age.
Step 3: A professional vision examination by an optometrist or ophthalmologist paid for by you, the parent, before or during your child's first year of school.

If you need a referral for either a vision assessment for your three-year-old or an examination for your kindergarten student, call the Eye Care Council at 1-800-960-EYES
