“Two million children in the U.S. do not have the glasses they need to see the board, read a book or participate in class.” This is a startling statistic from the nonprofit organization Vision To Learn. It is a growing national charity offering free vision screenings, eye exams and, if necessary, glasses for children ages 5-18.

Three Cobb County public libraries are hosting upcoming mobile eye clinics. Each Vision to Learn visit will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Space is limited and no walk-ins will be accepted. Please note pre-registration is required.

These library events will be the first Vision To Learn visits in Cobb County and at Georgia public libraries. They are part of Cobb Public Library System’s efforts to collaborate with organizations to improve educational outcomes for “cradle to career” success. Founded in 2012 in Los Angeles, Vision To Learn now reaches low-income students in 12 states. VTL was launched in Georgia in 2017 through a multi-year partnership with the Atlanta Hawks Foundation. More than 1,000 Atlanta Public School students have received free glasses so far in the 2017-2018 school year.

Free Vision Screenings!

Free vision screenings at select libraries in September

Injuries from falls are a leading reason Cobb residents visit emergency rooms and vision problems are identified as a top risk factor for falling, especially for seniors. According to the CDC, the average hospital cost is more than $30,000 for a fall injury. To help our community address this, three area Lions Clubs will offer free vision screenings in September at five county libraries. The screenings are for adults and children, from six months of age. Lions Club volunteers use a screening device to detect possible vision issues that require follow-up professional care. Walk-ins are encouraged.

The free screenings will be held:

  • 2-4 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 6 
    West Cobb Regional Library, 1750 Dennis Kemp Lane, Kennesaw
    Paulding-West Cobb Lions Club
  • 2-4 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 9
