About the Program

Eyes That Thrive is a program to support school based care of prescribed vision treatment plans following the diagnosis of a vision condition. Treatment plans may include eyeglasses, eye patches, medication or monitoring.

Implementation of the Eyes that Thrive in School/Early Education Programs requires collaboration and commitment between families, eye doctors (optometrists and ophthalmologists), school nurses/health managers, educators and primary care providers.
