Conexus, in partnership with Comcast Spotlight, has been working for over a year to develop a branding and messaging campaign to help the general public gain a better understanding of the role vision plays in the lives of our children.
Our eyes have the ability to communicate...to learn...to love. 80% of what our children learn in school is through vision, and 1 in 4 children has a vision problem significant enough to impact learning. At Conexus, our mission to ensure that all children reach their fullest potential by eliminating undetected and untreated vision problems as barriers to success.
We hope that our message will resonate with parents and educators across the region, and that the community will respond with support for our programs — whether it be financial support, an advocate within the school system, or a voice in the General Assembly. Vision problems in children are prevalent. With all of the challenges facing our children today, from hunger to homelessness….poor vision is something we have the power to fix and change the life of a child forever!
