The needs of students are not always noticed easily, especially when it takes a while to see it. Much like elementary school students and the ninety-five percent of first graders that actually need glasses. The Clippers, for a third year, have contributed to this issue and contributed to Vision to Learn.

Vision to Learn has provided vision services to over 900,000 students in the Inglewood and Long Beach Unified School Districts. The organization is nonprofit and work with the L.A. Clippers Foundation to provide eye exams and eyeglasses to anyone in the District for free. There is even a chance that it can impact almost ten percent of L.A. Unified students. It allows a much better chance for students to be given their proper needs.

Almost all the students who are not given proper eye care or glasses do not have the access to the affordable vision care and live in a low-income family. The use of glasses for students who need it is beneficial because “80 percent of all learning during a child’s first 12 years is visual.”

The organization will begin travel in Blake Griffin branded mobile clinics.
