Giving kids the gift of better vision

Children across the country have poor eyesight – but some don't have proper vision care and never get the glasses they need. An organization called Vision to Learn is changing that, helping thousands of Los Angeles schoolchildren see clearly. NBC's Miguel Almaguer reports.
