Supporting the Community

670 million people are blind or vision impaired simply because they cannot get the glasses they need. Optometry Giving Sight funds the solution – an eye exam and a pair of glasses. Delivered through sustainable primary eye care programs, we can give sight to millions in need.

The Vision

A world where avoidable blindness and vision loss due simply to the lack of a pair of eye glasses no longer threaten the quality-of-life and future livelihoods of children and adults because there is universal access to quality vision and eye care services for all those in need.

The Mission

Sight is the most treasured of our five senses. We see the world and its myriad colours and shapes through the windows of our eyes. We learn with them. We laugh with them. We communicate with them. We provide for our families with them. We see our loved ones with them.

Sight can make the difference between a life of poverty and a life of opportunity.
