Optical Prime Jr.
In 2019, half Helen launched phase one of the “pop-up” optometry clinic. Optical Prime Jr was the first step to tackling the access to care gap by bringing vision clinic services directly to the students who need them most. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, half Helen has acquired the necessary equipment to outfit a portable exam lane and contracted with licensed optometrists to conduct eye exams. During the clinic, students will have the opportunity to choose form hundreds of high-quality frame styles and find a new pair of glasses to fit their personal style.
Most importantly, Optical Prime services are provided at no cost to the school, students, or their families.
Addressing the Need
Nationally, 40% of children who fail a vision screening never see an eye doctor. Optical Prime helps solve this problem by bringing quality vision care directly to students in need.
