Program description

For more than 10 years now, our program has gone around the Province in elementary schools with a high deprivation index to offer freee visual screening to children from 5 to 12 years old as well as, free glasses to families taht need the financial aid.

Our program is recognized by our Ministry of Education and is realised with the collaboration of l'Ordre des optométrsites du Québec.

Few statistics :

  • More than 25,000 children were screened in 250 schools around the province
  • More than 12,000 children were referred for a complete visual examination
  • More than 7,000 pair of glasses were provided to kids
  • More than 80 towns were visited in 16 regions
  • More than 60,000 families were informed on the importance of a healthy vision and an annuel exam.

Many parents and teachers told us that following our visit, the school marks of several children were dramatically increased. By improving eyesight, a simple pair of glasses may prevent the child from being behind at school, and eventually avoid him/her dropping out of school. 

You are the principal of an elementary school ? You would like to hold an eyesight screening activity?

Call the Foundation at 1-877-654-0835 to tell us about your interest. The next step is to verify the eligibility of your school to the Join and see program (determined by data from the Ministère de l'Éducation, du Loisir et des Sports). If your school is indeed eligible, we will set with you a suitable date to hold an eyesight screening activity. According to the number of requests, we may be able to go forward in concretizing this activity.
