Vision To Learn provides vision screenings, eye exams, and prescription glasses to students – free of charge for the children and their families.

Vision To Learn was founded in 2012 with one mobile clinic visiting California schools.

VTL, which operates primarily as a schools-based program, expanded to Georgia in 2017 at large metro Atlanta school system. VTL added summertime public library clinics starting in 2018 in Cobb County, and has added Douglas County this summer!  Demand for Vision To Learn appointments at libraries is typically high and it’s common for the clinics to be filled.

“Vision To Learn’s mission is to provide children with the glasses they need to succeed in school and in life,” said Vision To Learn founder Austin Beutner. “Libraries are an ideal place to help reach children and their families.”

Vision To Learn is a national non-profit of eyecare professionals and supporters calling for communities to act to close the “glasses gap” of children in need to support literacy, grade-level reading and wellness.

Just as communities make sure students have food and school supplies, everywhere in the country should strive to ensure all have the glasses they need, Vision To Learn officials say.
