San Jacinto College eye care technology students helped make a difference in local kids’ classroom success through See to Succeed.

From Feb. 26-March 1, the College’s eye care technology program teamed with eye care professionals to provide free eye screenings, exams, and glasses fittings for Pasadena Independent School District students.

At the Pasadena Convention Center, 300 See to Succeed volunteers saw 1,313 children. About 1,280 received free glasses, and 364 received medical referrals for other eye issues.

This service learning project not only provides valuable eye exams to local children but also educates San Jac students on career-specific skill sets, such as communicating with patients and collaborating with other health care providers.
