Local eyeware company 'Chromos Cares' has partnered with Pittsburgh Public Schools to address vision issues among students.

The American Foundation for Vision Awareness estimates up to 25 percent of school-age children have vision problems that impair their academic performance. To combat this, Lawrenceville-based Chromos Eyewear is partnering with Pittsburgh Public Schools to provide students with proper eye care. Joining us for an in-depth look at the Chromos Cares program are Chromos Eyewear founder Daniel Childs and PPS assistant superintendent Dara Ware Allen.
