New Video from Portland-Based Philanthropic Eyewear Maker Features Successful Hometown Eye Care Clinic for Kids

Clinic participants received their finished glasses in mid-October—a boon for families without insurance, who often cannot afford the prescription eyewear that their kids need to succeed in school.
