Free vision tests expand into St. Paul Public Schools

[WCCO-TV, May 06, 2014] Thousands of kids in St. Paul will soon be getting a better education. It’s not because their teachers are doing anything different. It’s because they’ll be able to see the board and their books better.

Over the last few years, vision tests have been phased out at many public schools in the metro.

Phillips Eye Institute Foundation, part of Allina Health, says 25 percent of students have vision problems that affect their grades and daily routine. The Early Youth Eyecare (EYE) program helps amend that.
