The See to Succeed program is off to a great start this year as they completed over 1,870 eye exams this week. The partnership between UHCO, the Houston Department of Health and Human Service, Berkley Eye Center, Essilor Foundation, Essilor Corporation, Eye Care for Kids, Kids Vision for Life, San Jacinto Community College, and Wal-Mart Corporation, began seeing kids in fall 2012.
The partnerships goal was achieved last year with a record breaking 10,000+ students screened over the academic year. With so many throughout Houston with unresolved vision needs, the program hopes to have another record breaking year. See to Succeed is helping the greater Houston community by Enhancing Vision for Life through helping children see a brighter tomorrow.
