The Number of People Without Access to Glasses Will Break Your Heart
Being able to see is something a lot of us take for granted, even us four-eyes (hi!) who are lucky enough to have access to the eyewear we need to make that happen. But did you know that one in seven people need glasses and have no way to get them? That’s 1.1 billion people worldwide who still need access to vision care. For them, life is literally a blur.
We’re partnering with OneSight to shine a light on World Sight Day on October 13, a global movement to bring awareness to the issue of eye care AND an opportunity to reflect on the clear sight that we depend on to make a living, succeed in school and connect with others every day. It’s also a day to help #unblur the vision of those who don’t have access to the glasses that you and I are lucky to have.
The kicker? Many of the people who lack access to vision care live right here in the US. In fact, there are 14 million Americans aged 12 and older who suffer from a vision impairment that they’re aware of. Many others live with vision impairments that have gone undiagnosed and untreated. This probably goes without saying, but that is NOT okay.
Enter OneSight, an independent nonprofit leading the global effort to provide eye exams and glasses to underserved communities around the world. OneSight brings vision care to people all over by mobilizing eye care professionals, industry experts, volunteers and partners. Oh yeah, and people like you and me. Revolutionary, right? But it’s actually pretty easy to help out.
This World Sight Day, join us to #UNBLUR life for the one in seven people around the world who needs glasses, but lack access, by donating $10 today at onesight.org/donate. A $10 donation helps provide a pair of glasses to someone in need. So, let’s make this World Sight Day count. Click here to find out how to #unblur the world for people in need.
