Uncorrected poor vision affects 1 in 3 people around the world. 90% of these people live in developing communities where there is limited access to vision care and awareness of vision issues. That’s why our work focuses on partnering with governments, NGOs and like-minded private organizations to create sustainable access to vision care, provide free eye exams and glasses for those most in need, fund local vision care programs and raise awareness of poor vision among policy makers and at a community level.
Since 2013, the Group, along with its partners, has created permanent access to vision care for over 762 million people, equipping more than 71.8 million people in underserved regions with eyeglasses and creating rural livelihoods in vision care through more than 27,700 rural optical points.
