About VisionQuest 20/20
VisionQuest 20/20 was founded as The Amblyopia Foundation of America by James W. O'Neil and Richard Tirendi - two individuals who have been impacted both personally and professionally by vision disorders. Founded in 2003, VisionQuest 20/20 is the only 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to establishing our country's first nationwide vision screening program for school children.
VisionQuest 20/20 is driven to dramatically improve the quality and availability of vision screenings for millions of school children, ensuring that eye examinations are more accessible, affordable, accurate and fun. Our comprehensive program, EyeSpy 20/20™ identifies children with potential vision disorders and allows schools to automatically generate reports for parents and follow up health care providers.
Scientifically validated and developed with the child in mind, EyeSpy 20/20™ software allows children to be screened for roughly $5, a fraction of the cost of bringing a trained medical professional to a school, or visiting one in person.
Among other features, the EyeSpy 20/20™ vision screening program has the unique potential for the system to be used as a school fundraiser. The EyeSpy 20/20™ system has the ability to generate printed reports, or referrals for additional testing if needed for each student screened. Schools may elect to sell sponsors a small banner ad featured on each report, to not only cover the cost of vision screenings, but other school needs as well.
VisionQuest 20/20, through the creation of EyeSpy 20/20™ has developed a way to make vision screenings accurate and affordable, we are the only organization in the world poised with the solutions to make annual vision screenings accessible to every child. No child should struggle with unidentified vision deficits.
Because healthy vision is critical for children to achieve their full potential in school and life, VisionQuest 20/20 recognize that all school-age children must have their vision screened annually to maximize the opportunity for effective treatment. To effectively facilitate a state-of-the-art, nationwide vision screening program, VisionQuest 20/20 collaborates with:
- Other non-profit organizations
- Government agencies
