The mayor is expected to announce an expansion of the city's program that will offer vision screening and free eyeglasses to schoolchildren who need them

  • The program has been in place since 2015 in 224 schools, but will expand citywide to over 250 schools.
  • The city has partnered with Warby Parker through their Pupils Project since 2015 and provided NYC schoolchildren with about 26,000 pairs of glasses.
  • Screenings help combat vision issues that can interfere with early education at a time when children may not know that they are in need of glasses.
