Hundreds of millions of people lack the glasses they need.


Eyejusters can help.

Hundreds of millions of people in the developing world can't see clearly because there are very few optometrists. Our glasses can help: users simply adjust them to suit their own eyes.

How We Help

Eyejusters overcome the need for optometrists by allowing users to adjust the lenses to suit their own eyes. We work with vision projects around the world who are delivering our glasses. They use Eyejusters to provide people with near and distance vision glasses in places where there are very few optometrists.

The Need

Over 700 million people worldwide lack a pair of glasses that would help them see clearly. This is mainly due to a lack of optometrists in the developing world. Uncorrected poor vision has personal and financial costs: lost opportunities, poorer education and restricted work, totalling to a huge estimated global economic loss of over $200bn.

Give & Get

You can support developing world vision projects by donating a pair of Eyejusters with your order. Each donation provides a pair of distance or near vision Eyejusters to one of our projects worldwide.

Run a Vision Project

If you're an organisation working in the developing world and want to add Eyejusters to your projects, it's simple. You can buy a distribution kit directly from us, or apply to receive glasses donated by our customers through Give & Get.

Training

We provide free training and support material for all aspects of Eyejusters distribution - project planning, training courses for you and your organisation, vision charts, and data collection. Remember, if you order a distribution kit, printed support materials and charts are included.

What do I need?

The basics: you should have read the Training Guide and will also need a Distance Vision Chart. It is also a good idea to have a 'How to choose glasses' chart handy and to record data with the Data Collection Sheet. The full selection of materials is available below.

Other Materials

Question & Answer Book
A set of questions accompanying the training guide to test your knowledge of the material, including answers for self-assessment purposes. Also included is a certificate of completion at the back of each question book.

Project Planning
To help organisations planning small vision projects in the developing world, or just starting out with distribution of Eyejusters, we've provided a basic guide to setting up small eyeglasses distribution projects based on our own experience.

Trainers' Notes
Supporting the training guide is a set of trainers' notes, helping trainers set up training courses, assess trainees and make the most of the training guide.

Training Slides
These slides complement the training guide and help trainers emphasise points and get the key information across in a visual presentation. There are three formats available, Powerpoint 2007+, Powerpoint 97-2004 and PDF - please select the most appropriate.

Vision Charts
'Tumbling E' vision charts are an essential part of the dispensing process, and are usable for both literate and illiterate recipients. By using vision charts designed and marked to complement Eyejusters training materials you will lessen any chance of confusion.

Dispensers' Cheat Card
For new dispensers the pocket cheat card is perfect - when laminated and placed in a pocket it provides a quick reminder of the steps involved in providing Eyejusters, to make sure they don't miss a step.
