New Eyes for the Needy purchases new prescription eyeglasses through a voucher program for children and adults in the United States who cannot afford glasses on their own. New Eyes accepts, recycles and distributes donated glasses for poor people overseas.
Those with impaired vision live a life filled with fear, insecurity and vulnerability whether they are children, adults or seniors. Can a child see the blackboard or participate in recess? Can an adult fill out a job application or read a bus schedule? Can a senior be sure she’s taking the right medication or avoiding a fall? New Eyes is there to help.
Clear vision brings joy to the moment, security to everyday life and possibilities for the future. The transformative gift of glasses and the clarity they bring make a profound impact that lasts a lifetime.
