Better vision means a better chance of school success.

For the 11th year, San Jacinto College Eye Care Technology Program students teamed with eye care professionals to provide free eye screenings, exams, and glasses fittings for Pasadena ISD students.

Held Feb. 13-17 at Pasadena Convention Center, See to Succeed celebrated its 100,000th student in 2023.

This spring, the Texas Association of College Technical Educators recognized See to Succeed as its 2023 Program of Excellence. This service learning project not only provides valuable eye care services to local children but also educates San Jac students on career-specific skill sets, such as communicating with patients and collaborating with other health care providers.
