I have watched time and time again when a child is being vision screened using EyeSpy and they use the patch to cover one eye during the depth perception part of the test, kids fail and say things like "it goes dark", "I can't see out of this eye", "everything is blurry"... it breaks my heart to know these kids are struggling in school every day. I am so thankful for VisionQuest 20/20 and the difference they are making in the lives of kids vision and their education!

I am a volunteer with Visionquest 20/20 and see firsthand how dedicated the people are at making sure the children's vision is a real priority .

I grew up without glasses and needed them. When I got glasses at the age of 18 I was amazed what I had missed in life.

The people at Visionquest 20/20 are really dedicated and work very hard towards their goal of improving children's vision health through education and early detection. They are great advocates for kids, some of society's most vulnerable citizens, and the early detection of preventable blindness and vision impairment!

Advocates for kids is one way of putting it but the way I see it , they are helping to give the future of out children a step up in life!

I am a volunteer, unofficial advocate and supporter of Vision Quest 20/20. Early detection on a vision issue is so important especially in schools. My oldest daughter was diagnosed with high pressures in her eyes, which is the early stages of glaucoma. It was so scary, but if it weren't for vision screening in school, it might have gone undetected for years. Instead early detection, medications and follow-up care allowed my daughter to lower the pressures and stop the glaucoma from progressing as fast as it could have. My daughters vision today is testament to how important early testing especially in schools can be

I am a parent with 3 kids in glasses. I didn't know my son had a vision issue. He was held back in school. Vision is so important during the elementary years. I am so thankful for VisionQuest 20/20 and the EyeSpy 20/20 video game. My kids loved it and my eye doctor was so impressed. Thank you VisionQuest for what you do for these kids!
