Vision to Learn Keeps Glasses on Faces

WARREN, Ohio – Students in grades nine and 11 at Trumbull Career & Technical Center were given routine eye exams as part of a state mandate by the Ohio Department of Health.

Students who struggled with the eye exam will have an appointment made with Vision to Learn’s mobile clinic and a licensed independent optometrist.

Vision to Learn is a nonprofit organization that supports academic achievement by offering vision services to students across the U.S.

After the exam, students can choose from more than 100 options for frames built by Classic Optical in Youngstown, Ohio, at no charge to the family.

“A lot of times, families might be able to go to an eye doctor and get that frame, but we know how expensive that can be, and they break them and then they’re stuck,” says Christine Johnstone, program manager for Vision to Learn’s Youngstown branch. “We try to make sure that we keep those glasses on their faces.”
