Free Vision Services Available for CPS Students

News (Tuesday, May 1, 2018)

Healthy eyes are critical to a child’s development and success in school. Chicago Public Schools has partnered with healthcare providers to provide free vision exams to CPS students!

Illinois law requires comprehensive eye exams for children entering kindergarten or enrolling for the first time in Illinois schools. These partnerships allow a child to get their vision tested at no out of pocket cost. This is also a great resource for children who receive a vision referral for failing the vision screening at their school. If your child is having trouble seeing, consider making an appointment for an eye exam today!
