Austin and Virginia Beutner

Founders of Vision To Learn.  Vision To Learn ( is a non-profit that started operations in March of 2012.  The mission is to provide free eye exams and free eye glasses to elementary aged children that are enrolled in Title 1 schools and or live in low income areas of Los Angeles. To date they have examined over 14,400 children and prescribed/provided over 11,000 prescription eye glasses.  Children who would not otherwise get glasses are getting the chance to succeed.  It is already shown that the impact of having glasses is directly and positively impacting children's school performance and giving these children greater self esteem! The goal is to provide this service to the 100,000 children in the Los Angeles area that have untreated vision problems in the near future!  Any day that you can positively impact a childs life is a great day . . . so far there have been over 11,000 children that have gotten that gift.  Lets recognize the Beutners for their vision!
