Charity group provides eyeglasses to low-income families

In Severn, Maryland, more than 20 children at a Boys and Girls Club camp got an extra bonus this summer when a special van pulled up with an eye doctor inside, offering free exams.

The mobile clinic at the camp was just one of 25 operated by the charity group Vision to Learn, which helps low-income kids by making sure they can see, one pair of glasses at a time.

Optometrists volunteer their time and any glasses provided are paid for by donations, grants and business partnerships.

The group, of course, is making a huge impact because when kids can see clearly, they do better in school and while playing sports, giving them a big time boost in their performance and confidence at school -- and just allowing them to enjoy their life more.
