In 2008, Kids Vision for Life Tarrant County (Kids Vision for Life-TC) began its collaboration with the Alcon Foundation, University of North Texas Health Science Center, United Way of Tarrant County, Lions Club and Boys & Girls Clubs of Fort Worth to provide vision services to area schools. Together, the collaboration has provided screenings for 95 schools and dispensed 20,193 new prescription glasses to area students at no cost to their families. Strong relationships with school administration, nurses, vision professionals and employee volunteers contribute the success of the Tarrant County program.
