Vision to Learn

  • The Reading School District has launched a pilot program in partnership with Vision to Learn to provide eye care and glasses to students at no cost to families. 

    Your child will be pre-screened by their school nurse. Should this pre-screening show that your child is having trouble seeing, they will be referred to the Vision to Learn doctors to be re-screened. During this re-screening, your child will select a free pair of glasses. Questions regarding this program can be forwarded to your school nurse.

    If your child has an unused Medicaid benefit, Vision to Learn may receive reimbursement through Medicaid.  Therefore, if your child is under the care of a local vision provider or have plans to be seen by a vision provider in the near future, they should opt-out of Vision to Learn services.

    El Distrito Escolar de Reading ha lanzado un programa piloto en asociación con Vision to Learn para brindar cuidado de la vista y proveer anteojos a los estudiantes sin costo alguno para las familias.

    Su hijo será evaluado previamente por la enfermera de la escuela. Si esta evaluación previa muestra que su hijo tiene problemas de visión, será referido a los médicos de Vision to Learn para que lo vuelvan a evaluar. Durante esta nueva evaluación, su hijo seleccionará un par de anteojos gratis. Las preguntas sobre este programa se pueden enviar a la enfermera de la escuela a la que asiste su hijo.

    Si su hijo tiene beneficios de Medicaid que no utiliza, Vision to Learn pudiera recibir un rembolso a través de Medicaid. Por lo tanto, si su hijo está bajo el cuidado de un proveedor local de la visión o tiene planes de que lo vea uno en un futuro cercano, debe optar por no recibir los servicios de Vision to Learn.
