YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE TODAY
Glasses make an immediate, tangible, and long-lasting change for the better for someone in need. Every $10 means someone can see their classwork, their workplace, or the faces of their loved ones clearly.
GLASSES ARE NOT A GIVEN
For over a billion people, they are out of reach: financially or physically (as in, there’s no one who can give an eye exam or even make a pair of glasses). From kids to parents to grandparents, there are people who can’t see the world around them clearly. But we can change that, together. Here’s how:
THROUGH PERMANENT VISION CENTERS
We partner with governments, NGOs, and other like-minded organizations to create permanent vision centers, operated and staffed by local people. It means lifetimes of clear sight that allows whole countries to own their own vision care systems.
Through targeted, short-term clinics
Sometimes there aren’t enough resources to support a long-term vision center. So we go where the need is to give people free eye exams and glasses that are made to their exact prescription—often delivered on-site right then and there.
