LOS ANGELES (CBS) — No, those aren’t kids in the classroom playing video games.

The elementary school kids as mentioned in Sibila Vargas’s report on the CBS 2 News at 11 p.m. Wednesday were actually learning and correcting their vision at the same time.

They are part of the Eyes in Conflict program. It finds kids with reading and tracking problems and works to correct them…kids who have trouble reading because their eyes might not match up exactly get the help they need to read … sometimes even above their grade level.

Win-win!

The Gemstone Foundation is behind this unique program. They are a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping people of all ages achieve visual efficiency through research and service.

Contact any elementary school for enrollment information: (323) 221-3194.
