Envision staff gives a student an eye exam Envision Boston Giving, created by Dr. Tricia Rose, an optometrist and founder of the Boston-based practice, Envision Boston Optometry, has launched a program that will serve three school over the course of the next year.


The program has started at the Washington Irving School and will provide free vision screenings and free glasses for all students who need them. The program will also replace glasses free of charge should the students break or lose them.


According to research, about 80 percent of all learning during a child's first 12 years comes through visual tasks such as reading, writing and using computers. Studies find that undetected and untreated vision problems can interfere with a child's ability to read and perform to his or her fullest potential.
