Our Focus

Our heart…. 

is to share the love of Jesus by meeting the basic vision needs of people around the world. 

It is our Mission…

to help change the lives of people around the world by providing:

Free Vision Screening

Free Reading Glasses

Free Prescription Glasses

According to the World Health Organization, there are 2.2 billion people who are visually impaired.

Yet nearly 50% of all visual impairment can be prevented or cured.

But in a developing nation, it can cost the average worker at least six months’ wages to purchase a prescription pair of glasses. And for some families, even reading glasses are unobtainable.

Globally, at least 1 billion people have a near or distance vision impairment that could have been prevented or has yet to be addressed. Reduced or absent eyesight, if not receiving timely attention and care, can have major and long-lasting effects on all aspects of life, including daily personal activities, interacting with the community, school and work opportunities, the ability to access public services and general health status.

Reduced eyesight can be caused by a number of factors, including systemic diseases like diabetes, trauma to the eyes, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts and infectious diseases of the cornea and trachoma. The majority of people with vision impairment are over the age of 50 years; however, vision loss can affect people of all ages. Blindness and vision impairment more severely impact on the life of people in low- and middle-income settings where accessibility to most essential services and specific government-supported aids may be lacking.
