Free Vision Screenings Campaign
Every 6.5 minutes a family learns that their child has permanent visual loss. In the vast majority of cases, the loss could have been prevented had the vision problem been detected sooner. Typically, the treatment costs for an individual whose vision has been compromised due to a disorder like amblyopia (lazy eye) can reach as high as $2,500 per year. But if the eye condition is detected early in childhood, the treatment is most often inexpensive, effective and the benefits last a lifetime.
Through your support, VisionQuest 20/20's comprehensive vision screening program can be delivered for about $5 per child, far less than the cost of traditional screening programs. Our efforts to implement a nationwide screening program would literally save our country billions of dollars annually in economic impact associated with undetected vision disorders and preventable vision loss.
