Rebecca gets free glasses from Essilor Vision Foundation

Rebecca

“Before I got my glasses, I thought it was normal to see blurry.”

Clear vision is especially crucial for children. Unlike hunger or tooth decay, children are often unable to self-identify that their vision is impaired. To them, blurry vision is normal.

…Now I can see books, letters, animals, my teacher and the ball..”

Like many parents, Eddie’s mother was unaware of the signs and symptoms of vision impairments. “It was a total surprise to me when I was told that he needed glasses. No one in my family uses glasses and I thought he was too young.”

Jay Lynn couldn’t see the board and her schoolwork was suffering. “I feel good about getting glasses. When my teacher writes the tiny problems on the chalkboard, I’ll be able to see that clearly with my new glasses.”

Justin

Justin had a pair of glasses but they broke and his family couldn’t get him a new pair. “One time I had to miss recess to finish a test because I couldn’t see the words so it took me a long time. With my new glasses I won’t have to do that again.”
