'Everyone Should Be Able to See'


NEW YORK—“I think everyone should be able to see,” says the schoolgirl narrating this video about OneSight’s latest initiative to provide eyecare and eyewear to underserved children in New York City. As part of the NYC Community Learning Schools Initiative, OneSight is working with local health partners and The SUNY College of Optometry to open two school-based vision centers at PS 188 in Brooklyn and PS 18 in the Bronx this fall. The OneSight Vision Center at PS188 will be operated by Lutheran Family Health Centers with sponsorship and volunteer support from LensCrafters. The OneSight Vision Center at PS 18 will be operated by Montefiore Medical Center with sponsorship and volunteer support from Sunglass Hut. Each center will serve more than 5,000 students annually providing comprehensive eye exams, glasses, fittings, adjustments and medical eyecare with an onsite optometrist, ophthalmic technician and optician. “It’s the greatest city in the world and everyone deserves a chance to see it,” concludes the girl narrating the video.
