Help @VSPVisionCare Offer Free Eye Exams to Needy Children + a $200 Visa Gift Card #Giveaway For You!

free eye exam for needy children

VSP Vision Care is on a mission to provide up to 50,000 at-risk youth in America with over $19 million in free eye exams and eye glasses this year. Through the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, VSP has launched the Eye Pledge Campaign to provide them with what may be the most important exam they take all year. Eye health plays a critical role in your child’s ability to learn, play, and develop, and unfortunately, one in four students across the country has a visual impairment problem, many of which go undiagnosed.
