Be An Advocate
You can be an advocate for assuring that all children are able to benefit from a full range of vision skills needed to succeed in school and in life.
Opportunities for you to help include:
Help educate other parents and community leaders about the value of vision care and what vision skills are needed for success.
Encourage children to get vision evaluations that are sufficient to test the range of skills they need. Take advantage of educational and informational resources available on this website.
Help identify children who may show warning signs of vision deficiencies. Remember that most children don't know what 'normal' vision looks like, so they won't self-identify if they have a problem.
Increase awareness of resources that are available in your community for vision care. Help locate eye doctors. Check this website for information about public service programs and charitable programs that offer care to underserved children and families.
Donate money that helps the foundation increase public awareness and underwrites charitable vision care for needy Nebraska children.
