Vision to Learn

Everychild’s 2023 grant will fund a ground-breaking 2-year pilot program with VTL and Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles (CHLA), utilizing 3 new mobile vision clinics and next-generation telehealth technologies to provide a multi-tiered “pyramid of care” to an estimated 19,000 K-12 students in the Compton Unified School District. Approximately 5,000 students will be prescribed and provided with new eyeglasses, and the estimated 10-20% of students examined by VTL optometrists identified as needing a higher level of eye care will now have access to CHLA ophthalmologists in real time.
