What a difference being able to see makes!

During one of our tutoring sessions, I noticed one of the novices kept rubbing his eyes as if he had a headache. I wondered if he had trouble seeing, and asked him if reading gave him headaches.

He said no but the other novice in my group said he did have trouble seeing when he was reading. I added his name to the list of novices to get their eyes tested, courtesy of GVI. We take the novices we suspect of vision problems to the optometrist, where their eyes are tested and glasses are ordered, as required. GVI pays the bill. I'm thrilled that GVI is doing this. It's hard to read when you can't see!
