Conexus is excited to announce that our Council for Pediatric Vision had its first meeting this morning at our headquarters. The Council’s expertise will prove invaluable as they review and recommend protocols and policies relating to our public health and community program activities. We are so appreciative of the commitment the members of the Council have made to the organization, our programs, and the children we serve, and we look forward to seeing the ongoing results of the Council’s hard work!

A Tradition of Saving Sight Conexus, formerly known as Prevent Blindness Mid-Atlantic, was established in 1957 as the National Society to Prevent Blindness - Virginia Affiliate. Throughout our history, our name has changed to reflect our vision and reach, but our mission is clear: eliminating undetected and untreated vision problems as barriers to success, enabling all children to reach their fullest potential.
