While early detection is key to treating vision problems, only one in three children in America has received eye care services before the age of six, and children from low-income households are more likely to have undiagnosed vision problems.
With that in mind, Conexus has created comprehensive children’s programs so that no child has to go through school without the benefits of healthy vision.
Our VisioCheck program screened more than 59,000 students during the 2019-2020 school year. This is a record-setting number for us. In fact, it exceeds last year’s record-setting numbers by more than 10 percent!
In addition, our Mobile Vision Clinic was able to provide 3,149 exams, prescribe 2,295 pairs of glasses, and refer 512 children for additional care. In its inaugural school year in 2018-2019, the Conexus Mobile Vision Clinic provided 551 exams.
