Our Partners

By partnering with VisionSpring, you can help provide a health product that enhances the economic productivity of your beneficiaries and strengthens your organization. VisionSpring partners with organizations around the world who wish to purchase glasses and integrate them into their operations. Over the years we've worked with various groups, including microfinance and community health organizations who have understood the life-changing impact glasses can have on individuals. To establish partnerships, VisionSpring utilizes a very straightforward methodology:

1   Determine Model

Entrepreneur Model
This model leverages the reach of existing community health worker networks. We work to provide basic training on how to integrate eyeglasses into their "basket" of health products. The sale of eyeglasses provides a valuable source of income for health workers.
Fixed Location, Clinic, Kiosk Model
For those organizations looking to incorporate eyeglasses into an existing offering of goods and services.
Ongoing Innovation
VisionSpring is also open to understanding specific partner needs and helping design a distribution model that best suits the local context.

2   Determine Order Size


3   Order Glasses

VisionSpring sources from leading eyeglass manufacturers and has delivered eyeglasses to over 20 countries. We manage your order from start to finish, ensuring the glasses are completed on time and delivered to the destination of your choice. We also provide all documentation needed to get your goods in and out of customs as quickly as possible.


4   Launch Sustainable Partnership

With each glasses order, VisionSpring provides all necessary training materials at no extra cost. These materials have been influenced by feedback from VisionSpring staff, partners, and vision entrepreneurs around the world. In addition, we are available for ongoing support to work through any challenges and ensure you set up the best long-term program to distribute glasses in your community.
