NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Expect to see dozens of Nashville girls see better and shine a little brighter next school year thanks to sassy new spectacles from Draper James.
Sixty campers from the YWCA’s Girls Inc. were fitted with their first pair of prescription glasses at camp on Tuesday.
It’s all thanks to a mobile clinic from the VSP Eyes of Hope Program and Draper James.
The retail line created by Nashville’s Reese Witherspoon set up a mini-Draper boutique at the camp.
Research shows a direct correlation between eye sight and grades and performance in school, so the importance of an eye exam can’t be overstated.
“When there are uncorrected visual issues, children can have trouble seeing the board, keeping their place while reading,” said Dr. Danielle Richardson, an Eyes of Hope volunteer. “They suffer from eye pain, eye strain and headaches. If you want to set students up for success, it starts with vision.”
Richardson said you will see a direct uptick in kids’ performance in school when they have the proper glasses.
