I can see clearly now

Second-grader Kaitlyn Baerwalde, 8, of Pinellas Park models a new pair of glasses on Wednesday in the Glazer Family Foundation Vision Mobile van at Marjorie K. Rawlings Elementary School in Pinellas Park. Deric Straub, 9, a third-grader at Marjorie K. Rawlings Elementary School, gets his eyes examined by Dr. January Moennig on Wednesday. It was the van's first visit to the school; an ophthalmologist checked the vision of 44 students. The van will visit 60 schools — 30 in Pinellas County and 30 in Hillsborough County — according to Christy Schnell of the Glazer Family Foundation. The school's principal, Rebecca A. Moore, said 42 students failed a school vision test in December.
