1 IN 4 CHILDREN HAS A VISION PROBLEM THAT AFFECTS THEIR ABILITY TO LEARN.

AT CONEXUS, WE WORK HARD EVERY DAY TO REMOVE POOR VISION AS A BARRIER TO A CHILD’S SUCCESS IN

THE CLASSROOM.

Healthy Vision is Critical!

1 in 4 school aged children has a vision problem significant enough to impact learning; in economically challenged communities, 1 in 3 school aged children has a vision problem.

80% of what a child learns in a normal classroom setting is through vision.

74% of illiterate adults cannot pass a portion of their vision screening.

70% of juvenile delinquents have an uncorrected vision problem.

Only 15% of children will visit an eye care professional before entering school.

Essilor Foundation reports children with uncorrected visual acuity less than 20/20 are 3 times more likely to fail a grade in school.

Conexus Programs Aim to Remove Poor Vision as a Barrier to a Child’s Success!

Mobile Vision Clinic provides on-site eye exams in schools where access to care or other barriers broadly prevent follow up on vision screening referrals.  The clinic is a portable full-service vision lane that is set up in a classroom or other area of the school.  The non-dilated eye exams are intended to assess and treat visual function; concerns about eye health or the need for additional services and/or dilated exams are referred out for additional care.
 

VisioCheck programs use the safe, non-invasive plusoptiX® digital screening technology, which evaluates several factors that affect vision clarity and function.  Some of these issues can be corrected simply with a pair of glasses; others may cause permanent vision loss if left untreated.
