CLEVELAND — On Oct. 10 in honor of World Sight Day, students at Marion Seltzer School will receive free prescription glasses from Helen Keller International.

Students, grades kindergarten through 8th grade, received free vision screening at the start of the school year. Any student who identified as needing a prescription, will receive their free glasses during the follow-up visit at the school on Oct. 10.

This free eye clinic was made possible by a $250,000 grant from United Healthcare to Helen Keller International.

The Marion Seltzer School joins the I Promise School in giving their students access to free glasses. Last week, doctors from Stow-based Northeast Ohio Eye Surgeons visited the school to deliver 90 prescription glasses to students and their families, according to News 5 media partner Ohio.com.
