Millions of children in the U.S. lack proper vision care and cannot see the world clearly. It’s estimated that 25 percent of kids in schools have vision problems that affect their ability to learn. The Essilor Vision Foundation has provided the gift of eyesight to over 1.5 million people during the last decade.
