Tuesday represented a step towards a clearer vision for the future of Los Angeles…literally.

At a press conference held at Lovelia P. Flournoy Elementary School in South Los Angeles on Tuesday, the L.A. Clippers Foundation, in partnership with non-profit organization Vision to Learn and the Los Angeles Unified School District, announced that every student in the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) will be provided with free eye exams, and students in need will receive free glasses.

The initiative will benefit more than 600,000 students in the greater Los Angeles community.
