    Education in Sight is a non-profit organization whose vision is a world where no student has their academic potential limited by lack of access to corrected vision. The organization aims to deliver a pair of glasses to every student with nearsightedness in Yunnan – an estimated 1,000,000 students – by the summer of 2018. Education in Sight addresses the problem of poor vision in three ways: access, affordability and attitude. It brings local eye doctors directly to schools to perform exams and deliver eyeglasses. The organization also provides low-cost glasses to students at no charge. Lastly, it trains teachers to promote a positive culture and ensure students continue to wear glasses in the long-term. With a pair of eyeglasses, a student with poor vision can see academic performance jump by the equivalent of an entire extra year of school.
