Because children don’t always know what normal vision looks like, they’re unlikely to complain of vision problems.

ABSee is a new program launching today, on World Sight Day.  It’s powered by Pearle Vision and the global vision care non-profit OneSight.  They are helping school-age children nationwide see clearly.
