Hundreds of millions of kids don’t have the glasses they need. It’s a big—but solvable— problem, and very few people know about it. This World Sight Day, let’s change that together so children can thrive and learn to their potential.

On World Sight Day (Oct 8th), we’ll be releasing a free, downloadable book “Through the Looking Glasses.” Come back then and grab a copy for the kids in your life!

Let’s help kids see their own stories – and futures – clearly.
