Schoolkids to see increase in free vision tests, eyeglasses


More needy students are getting free eyeglasses from their public schools, city officials said Tuesday.


Staffers at 227 schools are giving kids free vision tests and Warby Parker glasses in an expansion of a program at 130 schools.


The expansion will cost the city roughly $3 million each year.


About 94,000 students have received vision screenings and more than 20,000 pairs of eyeglasses have been distributed since 2015.
