The mobile vision clinic Conexus stopped by Clark Elementary School to fit students for their very first pair of glasses on Thursday, November 2.
Conexus aims to remove poor vision as a barrier to learning, and by providing free eye exams to Charlottesville students, it is able to change students’ lives.
“They’re going to get out of the van and they’re going to look around and realize when they get their glasses, they can see leaves on the trees. As winter comes, they’ll see snow falling from the sky, and that’s really what we’re doing, causing success in the classroom and out,” said Jeff Baldwin, the director of communications for Conexus.
