The world is a big place. Here in the United States it’s easy to get sucked into the bubble. We have our own music, sports, entertainment, and our own problems. The bubble around the US keeps us focused on ourselves and causes us to forget or even care that the rest of the world exists.
The reality is, in many places around the world, things are worse than we could possibly imagine. With so much pain and struggle going on in the world, it’s hard to find ways to help. Now with the #ShareYourSight program, you can. “Share Your Sight” is a program that partners Glasses.com and OneSight, an independent nonprofit dedicated to ending the vision crisis around the world.
With every pair of eyewear bought on Glasses.com, a pair of eyewear will be donated to a person in need. I don’t know about you, but I feel good knowing that every time I order from their website for myself or my kids for school, I am making a difference by lending a helping hand to someone in need.
For those of you who don’t wear prescription lenses, Glasses.com also offers sunglasses so everyone can contribute to the cause. Once the glasses are bought, they are shipped to OneSight vision clinics all over the world. Volunteer opticians at the clinics will give patients free eye exams, help them select frames, get them fitted, and watch them walk out with a new eyewear- all in the same day.
1.1 billion people worldwide lack access to vision care or prescription eyewear. OneSight has already helped 9 million people in 41 countries and plan to help 20 million more people in the next 5 years. To get yourself a new pair of glasses and help someone in need, shop Glasses.com.
