The campaign is the Kids Eyes Count Campaign by Vision First Foundation. It's the name of our action plan that fulfills our mission—to raise the standards of eye care for our children's visual welfare. The Campaign is simple and easy. By following three simple steps, you can be a part of our mission, too.
"Join" means to participate, connect, or unite. "Join the Campaign" means to be a part of our mission to better the eye care for all children. For example, you can do this by supporting Vision First and by using the Vision First campaign materials.
The Vision First report forms and fact sheets are available as standard or custom versions. “Standard” is for a single copy or mulitple copies without the need for approval for distribution. "Custom" allows schools, organizations, and eye doctors to add their name to the Vision First documents once they have been approved for distribution. Custom documents are usually printed in quantity.
You can tell if it's a standard or custom document by looking at the bottom of the page. Each document is labeled in the bottom right corner as either "standard" or "custom."
The prewritten letters (i.e., vision screening letters, referral letters, eye exam letters) and custom documents are in a PDF format as a form. Each prewritten letter and custom document has an open or unlocked space. Just click each gray/blue section, insert your information, and you're ready to print your copies. If you need further help, please contact us here...
Yes! You may print or Xerox the prewritten letters, forms, and fact sheets in black and white. We understand many people do not have color printers and copy machines. You may also print black and white copies on colored paper of your choice.
Yes! All forms and fact sheets are in the correct format for quality printing by a computer or professional print shop.
Yes! When you download the form, choose the universal "US" version. The code is found in the bottom right corner of the form.
Vision First hopes all parents, schools, and eye doctors across the nation use our Preschool and Student Comprehensive Eye and Vision Examination Report. The Vision First report exceeds state standards.
Yes, we can, but only if your state enacted legislation requiring vision screening notification or required eye examinations by an eye doctor.
If you would like your state to reference its state law or Public Act in the Vision First documents, please contact us here...
If your state requires an eye examination before starting school, you need to find out if a special vision report in needed for proof of completing the required eye exam. If your state requires a special vision report form, please use that form. However, parents and eye doctors can still use the Vision First report form in addition to any special form required by a state law. The Vision First form has many benefits not found on any state form.
The first step is to find out what the requirements are for a proposed resolution. (e.g., When is the deadline for submissions? Does the resolutions committee require background material to accompany the resolution? If so, how many references are required for each “Whereas” statement and must they be within a certain time limit? Is there a page limit for the submitted background material?)
Since the proposed resolution does not call for presentation at a national convention, we recommend you follow the guidelines and requirements for your state PTA or teachers union. For further information or assistance, please contact us here...
The first step is to contact your state senator or representative. Share your personal experience and interest in raising the standards of eye care for our children’s visual welfare.
If your legislator is willing to become involved, please refer him/her to our website and contact Janet Hughes here... We will help you get your law passed.
