Cabrillo students to get free eyeglasses from Vision To Learn
Students at John Cabrillo Elementary School received free eye examinations last Friday from the Los Angeles-based nonprofit Vision To Learn.
Thirty-two students at Cabrillo were pre-identified with possible vision problems and were eligible for the free services. Free eyeglasses were ordered for 17 of the students. Board Member Jay Hansen assisted with the exams.
Vision To Learn was founded by former Wall Street investor banker Austin Beutner, now the CEO and publisher of the Los Angeles Times. More than 25,000 students in Los Angeles and Sacramento have been provided with glasses since the program began.
