CINCINNATI (FOX19) - According to the American Optometric Association, up to 94 percent of children with reading problems have reduced visual skills which can impede their ability to do well in school. OneSight, a family of charitable programs dedicated to improving vision for those in need, is working to change this during an Optical Clinic held at the Cincinnati Museum Center, December 12-16.
More than 1,400 students have been selected from Cincinnati Public, Northern Kentucky, Mt. Healthy, North College Hill, Reading, New Miami and Catholic Inner City Schools will receive full vision exams and new eyewear all free of charge. The Cincinnati Clinic is the last step in OneSight’s “Cycle of Sight” program that begins with trained volunteers screening over 26,000 students in more than 100 area schools. Students with visual and financial need are referred to the Clinic for a full eye exam with a licensed optometrist.
