Impact America – Tennessee
FocusFirst – A High-Tech Vision Care Initiative
Many vision problems go undiagnosed in preschoolers, particularly in low-income neighborhoods. Impact America- Tennessee will implement vision screenings by trained volunteer college interns in preschools and child care centers in nine counties in East Tennessee using a Spot digital screening camera to test vision in pre-literate children. Children with vision problems will be referred to Sight Savers America for comprehensive follow-up care, as needed.
