        Free Eye Exams and Glasses Give These Students Vision to Learn | PBS NewsHour

        A new program called Vision for Baltimore provides eye exams and two pairs of glasses free of charge to every K-8 student in Baltimore City who needs them. About 25 percent of students in Baltimore who need glasses do not have access to them due to their high cost and the high level of poverty in Baltimore. City health department officials, a nonprofit organization called Vision to Learn, researchers from Johns Hopkins University and the eye wear retailer Warby Parker are working together to provide the exams, prescriptions, and fashionable glasses.
