(https://littleeyes.com/a-little-boys-dream/) Little Eyes provides free vision screenings to over 20 schools and 2000 children each year. Little Eyes is also honored to also partner with the Indiana Blind Children’s Foundation and makes a donation for every single pair of glasses that are purchased since the inception of the practice.
