Our Vision Programs
Back To School

Imagine a child not being able to see the chalkboard or computer, having trouble reading a book, or even playing with his or her friends at school. If we could see the world through the eyes of a child that cannot see,

Children learn through their eyes. Eighty percent of what a child learns is learned visually and one in four children has an undetected vision problem. For thousands of children across Texas with a vision problem, they may think the way they see is normal. The longer a problem goes undiagnosed and treated, the more a child’s brain learns to accommodate the problem. This is why educating children, parents, caregivers, nurses and community volunteers is so important.

The educational information provided below educates children and their parents, caregivers, nurses, educators and community volunteers by raising heightened awareness to take care of their child’s vision and eye health. Prevent Blindness Texas has developed a series of infographics to support the importance of identifying a possible vision problem. Join our movement today by helping children see more clearly!
