Vizavance, formerly Prevent Blindness Oklahoma, received an email from a mother expressing gratitude. Her son was referred during a vision screening at a local OKC daycare. In her letter she shared, "My twelve month old son failed the SPOT vision screening. I took him to an opthalmologist who confirmed your findings. He was diagnosed with congenital cataract causing amblyopia. His vision was 20/80 in the left eye; after three years of treatment, his vision is currently 20/20! I am so thankful and blessed for your service." This child, along with thousands of other children who received exams and glasses as a result of a school vision screening, is doing better in school now. For this reason, Vizavance, formerly Prevent Blindness Oklahoma continues to work each year to help improve vision for the children of Oklahoma.
