We are able to continue to do what we do thanks to the generous donations of others. We thank you for your continued support.
Donate100% of donations goes toward vision impairment screenings and interventions for optical needs. This includes providing free comprehensive screenings to people, providing cataract surgeries, providing corrective lenses, and building a health care infrastructure in Ghana that includes optics. We also accept glasses donations which will help provide sight to individuals in lower and middle income countries. You can donate any used and unwanted prescription or non-prescription pairs of old eyeglasses. We accept both plastic and metal frames, single-vision, bifocals, and progressive lenses. There is also a great demand for children's glasses. We will even take sunglasses (regular or clip-on) as there is an enormous need for sunglasses in countries near the equator where UV rays, which can cause severe damage to the eyes, are at their highest levels.

Where will my eyeglasses go?
The eyeglasses are being sent overseas to various lower and middle income countries via religious missions and qualified charitable organizations. Those involved in the missions will ensure that your pair of eyeglasses is given to someone that matches or comes very close to your prescription. Some examples of past beneficiaries are Haiti, Honduras, Philippines, Marshall Islands, Mexico, Micronesia, and Uganda.
