Gwinnett County Public Library will be hosting Vision To Learn this Summer!

In Coordination with Vision To Learn, Gwinnett County Public Library will be offering vision screenings, eye exams, and, if necessary, glasses for children. Quality vision care is an important component of education; students who cannot see often struggle to learn to read, see the board, and succeed academically. The eye exams and eyeglasses are available free of charge to all students who need them at no out-of-pocket cost to parents or children.

What to Expect

If your child is chosen to get an exam, they will go through a basic screening. If this screening is failed, a trained and licensed Optometrist will perform a basic eye exam and prescribe glasses if appropriate.

If follow-up care is needed, you will be informed of this. If prescription glasses are needed, your child will be given the opportunity to pick from a variety of frames and submit an order. Vision To Learn will return in 4-6 weeks once the prescription glasses are ready for pick-up. Library staff will notify you when this occurs.

If no prescription glasses or follow-up care is needed, you and your child can enter the new school year with the peace of mind that their vision is sound.


No walk-ins will be accepted!

Exam appointments are on a first-come-first-served basis. Your appointment is not confirmed until you receive a confirmation from Vision To Learn.
