From the moment children wake in the morning, until they rest their heads at night – they use their eyes.
To learn at school, they need to be able to see their texts and lessons on the board. To develop relationships with their peers, they need to be able to see faces and play safely. To take in the world around them – they use their eyes.
For millions of children around the world, life without clear vision is normal. For them, not being able to see their lessons, or recognise the faces of their friends is normal. The crazy thing is that we have the solution and it doesn’t require the latest technology or comprehensive strategies. We have had it for centuries - a simple pair of glasses.
We need to help every child, everywhere get access to the eye care and the glasses they need to change the course of their future for the better.
