September 14, 2021
FRIDAY, Sept. 10, 2021 (HealthDay News) -- New glasses are helping kids in Baltimore see more success in school.
A three-year clinical study found that students who got new eyeglasses through a school-based program had higher reading and math test scores.
"The glasses offered the biggest benefit to the very kids who needed it the most – the ones who were really struggling in school," said Dr. Megan Collins, a pediatric ophthalmologist who is co-director of the Johns Hopkins Consortium for School-Based Health Solutions, in Baltimore.
