SEEING CLEARLY HAS A
IMPACT ON OUR LIVES
It also has some very big implications. It can help with some of the world’s most critical problems, like:
- Education: 80% of what kids learn is visual. And a simple pair of glasses can help students learn up to twice as much.
- Income inequality: Poverty is both a cause and effect of poor eyesight. Glasses have the power to increase productivity by 35% and earning potential by up to 20%.
- Gender inequality: Women and girls are more likely to be visually impaired, and are also less likely to get their vision corrected, especially in the developing world.
Around the world 1 person in 7 needs a pair of glasses but can’t get them. That means nearly 1.1 billion people are experiencing their own negative #SightEffects. We can change that, together.
