CONEXUS MOBILE CLINIC WORKING TO BRING HEALTHY VISION TO STUDENTS ACROSS RICHMOND - FROM WRIC 8-NEWS
“About one-third of the kids sitting in a classroom are unable to see well, and 80% of what a child learns in a classroom is through their eyes,” Tim Gresham, CEO, explained. “So, if a child is sitting in the classroom, not seeing as well as they should then they are not going to be as successful as they could be.”
Studies have shown that children who might not be able to see clearly could act out in class, disrupt others or become disengaged from the learning process.
Conexus works hand-in-hand with local schools to pre-screen student’s vision, and those that fail will then go through a routine eye exam, just like they were sitting in an optometrist’s office. But in this case, the office comes to the school.
