OneSight has its own version of the magic school bus—its fleet of Vision Vans! Fondly named SeeMore, Iris and EyeLeen, these vans definitely bring some magical experiences to schools of kids across North America who can’t afford eye exams or glasses. These 40-foot optical labs on wheels travel the country providing free optical exams and new glasses to children in need each year. In 2011, these four Vision Vans will trek across North America bringing care to thousands of kids.
80% of what children learn is visual. At this vital age, every child deserves to see that 80% intake of knowledge clearly. For kids, our Vision Vans are a fun adventure! They climb aboard these colorful mobile labs meeting with doctors, most for the first time in their lives. It is an incredibly heart-warming experience to see their faces light up as they take in their newly sharpened surroundings through their new glasses.
