See to Succeed

Vision correction is key to ensuring all children have an equal opportunity to learn and succeed.

About See To Succeed

SEE TO SUCCEED has a simple yet transformative purpose — giving students the gift of sight. A pair of eyeglasses can change lives and improve academic outcomes.

How It Works

The school nurse conducts vision screenings using the convenient, advanced technology of the Spot® Vision Screener. Students who fail the initial vision screening are then invited to participate in SEE TO SUCCEED. A licensed optometrist will provide thorough eye exams in the school-setting. Students who are prescribed glasses get to choose frames from a wide selection of styles and colors. Within two weeks, students receive the glasses they need along with improved vision.

“Too many of our families and children—especially those impacted by poverty—do
not get the health services they need or even have access to them. That’s why the Wilkes- Barre Area School District has partnered with the United Way of Wyoming Valley to bring health care to our schools, where our children learn and spend a great part of their days. See to Succeed enables our students to not only get their vision checked, but to provide them with quality eyeglasses when necessary.”
