Bret Harte students receive free eye exams, glasses
State Superintendent Tom Torlakson paid a visit to Bret Harte Elementary School on March 21 where he observed the Vision to Learn program in full swing.
Vision to Learn is a non-profit organization that believes in bringing free eye clinics to schools instead of sending families to clinics. Mobile clinics on site ensure that each child that is in need of glasses receives them.
At Bret Harte, every student received a free vision screening. School nurse Nho Le Hinds assisted in testing students’ vision.
As a result, 47 students were identified as needing glasses and will receive free glasses courtesy Vision to Learn.
