ABOUT THE PROJECT

Myopia, or short-sightedness, is commonly diagnosed at an early age; without vision correction, children are at a major disadvantage in school because 80% of learning occurs through their eyes. In order to help detect Myopia at an early age, Essilor Vision Foundation will be bringing quality vision care to the children of Dyslexia Association of Singapore this September.
