Vision to Learn is a non-profit group that provides free eye exams and glasses to children in low-income communities across the nation. It estimates that more than 60,000 students in metro Atlanta need glasses but do not have them. It started working with Atlanta Public Schools in the 2017-2018 school year and is expanding its footprint in the area.
Voters had rejected a referendum last year.
