About Our Partnership
Readers.com® has joined forces with RestoringVision to help support the organization’s mission: To empower lives by restoring vision for millions of people in need. More than 500 million people require only non-prescription reading glasses to correct their vision, yet they lack access to them. This is where RestoringVision steps in! As the largest global non-profit provider of new reading glasses to impoverished communities around the world, RestoringVision is able to increase the productivity, quality of life, and safety of individuals who simply require a pair of reading glasses for vision correction. Readers.com® is proud to partner with RestoringVision to help give the gift of sight.
Since 2003, RestoringVision has impacted more than
17 million people in 130 countries and counting.
Meet Oscar, a farmer in a remote village in Guatemala who earns a living by harvesting and selling beans. When the RestoringVision team met Oscar, he was unable to see close up and couldn’t clean and sort his bean crop due to his near vision impairment. He had been sharing a pair of reading glasses with his wife—glasses that were given to her “a long time ago.” “I couldn’t work if she was using the glasses, and she couldn’t work if I was using them either,” said Oscar. They both received a new pair of glasses with the diopter they each needed. Now they can both work and be productive at the same time. “These glasses have changed our lives so much,” said Oscar.
"Being able to design our own pair of glasses for a cause was an incredibly exciting process, and we’re thankful to Readers.com® for making us part of this wonderful endeavor. The design of the glasses was inspired by our logo and colors, and the multitude of experiences we’ve had in bringing clear vision to millions of people around the world."
