Volunteers Test Vision of Local Students

WALNUT HILLS, Ohio (Tiffany Wilson) -- Undiagnosed vision problems can make learning difficult.
That's why a team of Luxottica volunteers helped give vision screenings to Cincinnati Public School students today. Local 12's Tiffany Wilson visited Frederick Douglass School in Walnut Hills.
When trying to learn a lesson written on the white board seeing the words helps. Big time. But according to "One Sight" up to 25 percent of students have an undiagnosed vision problem.
The non-profit also says that 80 percent of what kids learn, they learn by seeing it. So you can understand why catching vision problems early becomes critical.
On his own, it would take school nurse William Robb months to screen all the students at Frederick Douglass Elementary.
Wednesday he got major help from a team of volunteers at Luxottica.
There are many students that come through who can't even read the top row.
If screeners notice a problem, Luxottica will help schedule a full eye exam and even help with the cost of glasses.
Luxottica is helping screen the vision of 100 students Wednesday, but over the next several weeks they'll help screen the vision of 30,000 students around the tri-state. They do a tremendous amount of good, it's just tremendous program.
Over the past 20 years, Luxottica volunteers have screened about 350,000 kids.
