For three years now, students in the Northside Independent School District (NISD) in San Antonio, Texas, have benefitted from comprehensive eye examinations provided through a partnership between the district, the University of the Incarnate Word Rosenberg School of Optometry and the Essilor Foundation. To date, 1,300 students have been examined and the university has provided approximately $150,000 in uncompensated eye care to underserved NISD students. Approximately 1,250 pairs of spectacles, donated by the Essilor Foundation, have been dispensed through the program.
