Free Eye Exams for KS Kids

"Kansas optometrists are using this week to ensure all kids can see to learn," reports WIBW.com. "'See to Learn Week' is a project of the Eye Care Council where the state's 250 member optometrists offer free vision assessments to 3-year olds. Dr. Bill Hefner of Topeka says it's an age when children are a bit more verbal and able to give accurate answers, yet still young enough that any problems can be addressed with a positive outcome. Hefner says, when abnormalities are caught early, they are often easier to treat and have a better result."
