Eye injury is the leading cause of blindness in children in the United States. VISION IN-School provides children information on how to protect their precious gift of vision.
The VISION IN-School program for fourth through sixth grade students was implemented by the Affiliates in 1996. JSEI Affiliates' volunteers have taught the interactive curriculum which covers anatomy of the eye, eye disorders, eye safety and injury prevention in scores of local classrooms, introducing over 9,000 children to this unique science program.
