Clear Vision – The gift we take for granted.
Welcome to Restoring Vision, a non-profit program providing new reading glasses and sunglasses at a nominal charge to groups going on missions to developing countries and domestic groups serving the underprivileged.
How would your lifestyle and livelihood be affected if your lost the ability to focus close-up and you couldn’t get it corrected? This problem impacts over a billion people in developing countries worldwide.
All of us experience the gradual loss of clear close-up vision around age 40. This common condition is called presbyopia. By age 45 virtually everyone needs a correction to see up close.
In developed countries like the U.S. presbyopia is easily corrected with prescription eyeglasses or reading glasses. But people in developing countries don’t have easy or affordable access to eyeglasses. This creates a serious and life altering problem. Since our inception in 2003, we have supplied over 1,700,000 glasses to people around the world, changing lives for the better.
