But even when vision impairment is suspected, there remain many barriers to adequate health services, including lack of medical-insurance coverage, lack of accessible transportation for appointments, the costs of taking time off work to ferry children to appointments, and the out-of-pocket costs for prescription glasses or other aids. Many new immigrant families may have further struggles navigating the health-care system due to linguistic and cultural barriers. The good news is there are organizations tackling this issue and making a difference, but they can’t do it on their own — nor should they. For example, the non-profit Toronto Foundation for Student Success launched an initiative in 2007 called the Gift of Sight and Sound, with support from corporate donors and partner non-profit organizations. They screen nearly 10,000 students every year for both vision and hearing problems in the early grades in inner-city Toronto. The screening takes place directly in the school, and if potential problems are detected, children receive full exams by an optometrist.
