ChildSight® Program Overview

Recognizing a lack of accessible, adequate vision care among low-income children in the United States, HKI established ChildSight® in 1994. The program identifies and treats refractive errors (i.e., nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism) by providing in-school vision screenings, prescription eyeglasses, and ophthalmologic referrals to local partners for follow-up care as needed. In so doing, the program “brings education into focus” ™ for children who would otherwise be left with poor vision – and unfulfilled potential. To date, ChildSight® has screened more than 1.9 million students in the U.S. and has provided free eyeglasses to approximately 300,000 children living in some of our country’s poorest neighborhoods.
