KIDS VISION FOR LIFE ST. LOUIS

About Us

Eliminating poor vision and its lifelong consequences
Providing no cost vision services to St. Louis area elementary students

Kids Vision for Life St. Louis (KVFL) is sponsored and operated by Crown Vision Center, Area Resources for Community and Human Services (ARCHS), and the Essilor Vision Foundation. Kids Vision for Life provides vision screenings, eye exams and new eyeglasses to students in need, ages 5-13, at no cost to the family through mobile clinics, school systems, central locations and special events. Vision screenings, eye exams, and prescription eyewear are provided to elementary-aged students that are economically disadvantaged and would not otherwise be able to obtain them. KVFL currently provides vision services for the following school districts: St. Louis Public Schools, Riverview Gardens, Jennings, Ferguson-Florissant, Bayless, Normandy, Maplewood Richmond Heights, Hancock Place, Ritenour, Pattonville, Affton, Saint Charles, as well as several charter and parochial schools in the St. Louis area.

  • 80% OF LEARNING IN A CHILD'S FIRST 12 YEARS COMES THROUGH THE EYES
  • 25% OF ALL SCHOOL CHILDREN IN THE US HAVE A VISION PROBLEM SIGNIFICANT ENOUGH TO AFFECT LEARNING
  • 90% OF CHILDREN WHO NEED GLASSES DO NOT HAVE THEM
