WHAT: Nearly 250 Lynwood Middle School students will receive free eyeglasses through the District’s partnership with Vision To Learn, a nonprofit dedicated to eliminating vision issues as a barrier to education.
The students who will receive new eyewear went through free screenings in fall 2018. The recipients have chosen their own frames.
VTL specialists have partnered with Lynwood’s Rotary Club and will join LMS staff members to distribute the glasses on the school’s campus.
WHEN: Tuesday, Feb. 26
WHERE: Lynwood Middle School
12124 Bullis Road
Lynwood, CA 90262
DETAILS: VTL staff worked alongside school nurses to administer vision screenings earlier this year. Students who required further treatment were visited at school by the Vision To Learn mobile eye clinic. Optometrists conducted full exams, wrote prescriptions and fitted students for glasses.
