See to Succeed

See to SucceedThe See to Succeed program provides free vision exams and quality corrective eyewear to school children 6-18 years old with unresolved vision needs from Houston area school districts and charter schools.

See to Succeed is a public-private partnership initiative created to solve a health issue for children in the greater Houston and surrounding areas.

Since the program's pilot in 2011, over 85,000 children have been seen and over 78,000 pairs of glasses delivered.


See to Succeed is made possible by generous contributions and support of both public and private organizations that have joined forces with the Houston Health Department. Organizations include the San Jacinto College Eye Technology program, the University of Houston College of Optometry, the Berkeley Eye Center, the Essilor Vision Foundation, Prevent Blindness Texas, and the Eye Care for Kids Foundation.

Major corporate sponsors of the initiative include Walmart, the Essilor Corporation, and Alcon.
