One third of the world's population - 2.5 billion people - do not have the vision correction they need because of where they live and what they can afford. And unless we do something about it, this figure is set to grow to 3.3 billion by 2050.
The good news: poor vision is a problem we can fix. In fact, the World Health Organization claims 80% of all vision impairment can be prevented or cured.
That's why, when your order ships, a pair of glasses will be donated on your behalf.
It's simple. Once your prescription order is placed on FramesDirect.com, you will have an option to choose to have a pair of glasses donated to someone in need on your behalf. If you would like the donation to go to a specific region, you can also choose one of eight regions in the world.
