Studies show that students who can see better will be able to read better. This year, CHAH is working with Dr. Charles Gold at Broadway Vision Center to get our students glasses: http://broadwayvision.nyc/. Students are being screened at school, and those who fail the vision screening are taken to Broadway Vision Center at 170th street for an exam with Dr. Gold, and the selection of glasses.
All of this is provided to students for free!
The picture represents students from the first two groups who had eye exams at Broadway Vision, and went together to pick up the glasses to be adjusted to fit properly. The students now face the challenge of wearing the glasses regularly, and getting used to them.
Thank you Dr. Gold and Broadway Vision Center!
