Today started the 2017/2018 school year at Conexus with the launch of Head Start VisioCheck programming. Last year, Dominion Energy awarded funding to provide VisioCheck programming to 1,500 Virginia Head Start students. Head Start mandates vision screenings for their students within the first 45 days of school and VisioCheck delivery will allow schools to meet the mandate with improved vision programming for their students. Head Start VisioCheck programming is scheduled to run through mid-October and expects to find nearly 375 students in need of follow-up eye exams.

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.
