SEE TO LEARN®

Good vision is critical to learning, because more than 80 percent of learning is done visually.
Yet studies indicate that more than 20 percent of kindergarten children have vision problems, and this number
climbs to between 30 and 40 percent by the time these children reach high school graduation.

Vision problems may keep many children from graduating from high school, as more than 70 percent
of juvenile delinquents and 60 percent of adults in literacy programs have vision problems. SEE TO LEARN® was
developed to reduce these statistics, and optometrists from across the country are working together to make sure
all children can see to learn.

What is SEE TO LEARN®
SEE TO LEARN® is an innovative, three-step preventive health program designed to ensure that kindergarten
children entering school can see to learn and to educate parents and teachers about the warning signs of vision
problems in all school-age children.

If you need a referral for a vision assessment for your three-year-old or an examination
for your kindergarten student, contact Eye Care Council at
