THE DIFFERENCE IS CLEAR
Living in a world that’s blurry makes everyday things more difficult—and sometimes even dangerous. 1 in 7 people around the world right now have to live with poor eyesight because there’s no way for them to get the glasses they need. But we can change that, together.
Join Us to Help the World See clearly
Become part of the journey to ensure everyone, everywhere can get the glasses they need. You’ll get stories of people seeing clearly for the first time, and see how we are building long-term access for those in need.
How are we making a change this big in the world?
Our goal is nothing short of eliminating the vision care gap and ensuring that everyone, everywhere has access to an eye exam and a pair of glasses if they need them. Here’s how we’re doing it.
wheRE Possible, build
For communities that have the infrastructure and resources to support them, we partner to create sustainable vision centers. These centers provide ongoing access to vision care that’s affordable, with prices scaled to meet the needs of the people they serve. This year we were able to ensure that the entire country of The Gambia has access to vision care through a network of vision centers we created in partnership with the Gambian Ministry of Health.
Some places aren’t ready to support a long-term, permanent solution. That means delivering vision care through our charitable vision clinics. Whether we’re serving Syrian refugees in Jordan, or people in the heights of Nepal, or school-kids in New York City (with a special guest appearance from Billie Jean King), everyone who attends receives an eye exam and a pair of glasses made specifically for them.
