MARIAM

CINCINNATI, OHIO, USA | 17 YRS
HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR

When Mariam was 11, she got her first pair of glasses from OneSight. ”Before I had glasses, I didn’t really know that my eyes were changing until I sat in the back of the class, and I couldn’t see anything on the board.”

That all changed though with a visit to her OneSight School-Based Vision Center. We caught up with her recently as she was getting ready to graduate high school, and her glasses are as helpful as ever. “My favorite thing about glasses is they give you options— a better insight into the world around you.”

Her favorite subject is math, and Mariam is looking forward to studying something STEM-related but she’s not sure what yet. For now, she’s keeping her options open and her future in sight.

1 in 4 students in the US has an undiagnosed vision problem. Give a new pair of glasses to a student like Mariam for as little as $10.
