Following the devastation caused by Harvey, Prevent Blindness Texas joined the relief efforts to provide eye care services at the George R. Brown Convention Center and NRG Center. In partnership with the eye care community, Prevent Blindness Texas staff and volunteers continued to provide vision screenings and education to more than 500 adults, and helped to coordinate follow up eye care services including eye exams and eyeglasses in the Dallas and Houston areas. During this time of need, we know it can be challening. We heard the stories of people leaving everything behind. For many, this included their eyeglasses. We remain committed to helping to restore the sight to those affected by Harvey.

The "Sight for Students" Program is VSP Vision Care’s national charity program that provides FREE EYE EXAMS AND EYEGLASSES, when prescribed, to those children who qualify. In order for a child to qualify for the program, there are certain eligibility criteria that must be met. If the child is eligible, Prevent Blindness Texas will issue a "Sight for Students" gift certificate along with a list of VSP doctors in the area. All VSP doctors accept "Sight for Students" gift certificates, so the family can pick the doctor that's right for their child.
