Improve Livelihoods.
Increase Productivity.

Simple reading glasses have demonstrated the largest ever recorded productivity increase from any health intervention in a randomized trial. Above all, eyeglasses are a livelihoods intervention. Just when skilled workers are peaking in their abilities – be they artisans, tailors, mechanics, or farmers – age-related blurry vision jeopardizes their livelihoods and their income. Eyeglasses fix that, enabling adults to maintain their productivity, extend their working years, and continue to care for their families.

How it works

  1. Training of select factory employees to become Vision Champions to provide onsite vision awareness activities in the weeks and months prior and  following the Vision Camp
  2. Onsite vision screening and diagnosis of vision errors by skilled optometrists
  3. Same-day dispensing of near-vision glasses and delivery of custom prescription glasses with guidance for proper wear and care
  4. Our teams work with managers to ensure workers receive quality care while keeping time away from the factory floor to a minimum
  5. Providing participants with materials to promote vision awareness among their families and communities
