What is Eye See … Eye Learn® (ESEL)?
Eye See … Eye Learn® is a children’s vision program providing kindergarten students with comprehensive eye exams and, if prescribed, one free pair of eyeglasses. Eye exams are provided by Doctors of Optometry in participating school districts, and eyeglasses are provided courtesy of our corporate partners: Essilor, OGI Eyewear, and 20/20 Accessory Source Ltd.
Good eye health and vision are essential for academic and developmental success during children’s early learning years. However, statistics show that 1 in 4 school-age children has an underlying vision problem that can affect performance.
The purpose of Eye See … Eye Learn® is to detect, diagnose and treat Kindergarten children with vision problems so that every child can see and learn to the best of their ability.
How does ESEL work?
Families of Kindergarten children in participating school districts receive a letter from school staff introducing them to the program. Parents then select a participating member doctor and call directly to make an appointment for their child.
