eye spies believes in giving back and improving lives around the world.
We are thrilled to announce our partnership with OneDollarGlasses, a global eyewear organization.
The World Health Organization estimates more than 153 million people suffer from visual impairment due to uncorrected refractive errors (near-sightedness, far-sightedness or astigmatism). Virtually all these people could restore normal vision with eyeglasses or contact lenses. More than 90% of the world's visually impaired people live in low- and middle-income countries. They cannot learn, cannot work and cannot provide for their families.
eye spies wants to help and you can too! When you buy a pair of eye spies reading glasses, we donate one dollar to OneDollarGlasses.
OneDollarGlasses consist of a lightweight, flexible spring steel frame, prefab lenses and can be locally manufactured with simple bending machines. The material costs: approximately $1 US Dollar.
Martin Aufmuth, President of OneDollarGlasses, has developed an already proven concept to manufacture and distribute "OneDollarGlasses" on a sustainable, charitable basis that can be individually adjusted to the prescription needed. OneDollarGlasses can be locally produced in developing countries by qualified people trained by OneDollarGlasses and sold at an affordable price on the basis of a sustainable, self-financing business model with a strong impact within each community.
