Vision impairment is one of the disabilities that can prevent children, especially in low-income countries, from attending school and learning like their peers. Sometimes, all it takes is a simple pair of eyeglasses to change a child’s life. With basic support and training for teachers and educators, it is possible to include these children in regular classrooms and give them the chance to lead a successful productive life.
