As doctors we know all too well that uncorrected vision problems are especially impactful for children, leaving them at great risk for missing out on potential academic success and important stages of social development.
ChildSight is dedicated to making a positive and significant impact on thousands of New Jersey children and families who would otherwise needlessly struggle with untreated vision disorders.

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.

"Never bend your head. Hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye."
The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves.
