Our mission is to create affordable access to eyewear, everywhere.
2.5 billion people would be able to earn, learn and be safe, if they could acquire a pair
of simple eyeglasses to see clearly. Of these, 624 million are visually impaired without this
700-year-old technology, and 70% just need a pair of over-the-counter reading glasses.
VisionSpring can source these for as little as $1 and deliver to those living on less than $5/day.
To date, our efforts here have lead to $1.2B in economic impact at the household level.
