Give Back: Give the Gift of Sight

The first thing I do when I wake up in the morning is reach for my glasses. Why? Because without my glasses, the world is just a blur. I started wearing glasses when I was in middle school. I would often get, migraines and after going to several specialists, one of them concluded that I needed glasses and he was right. Looking back, I was fortunate enough to have parents that had the funds to procure the necessary facilities I needed.

Did you know 1 in 7 people don’t have access to vision care? Besides not being able to afford an exam or a pair of glasses, sometimes it’s about location, it’s as simple as not living anywhere near an eye doctor. All these roadblocks could lead to poor eyesight–in school, on the job, and it could hinder relationships. Which is where nonprofit organizations like OneSight comes in. Their mission is to provide access to vision care globally.
