Paying it forward, doctors with the Dean McGee Eye Institute gave metro students a complete eye exam Monday for free.

Students from Harding Prep School had their eyes checked to make sure they didn't need glasses or other optical treatment.

It's something Dean McGee's Eye Institute has been doing for years.

"You need to have good vision in order to be able to read and learn and to have academic success, and then of course have success for your future life or career," Dr. Mike Siatkowski said. "So, we are providing this as a service to the community for these kids today to make sure they have all the tools that they need to succeed."

If doctors do find something wrong, they treat the child for free.
