Hundreds of millions of people lack the glasses they need. Eyejusters can help.
Over 670 million 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We work with partners around the world, including brands that donate a pair of Eyejusters for every product they sell.
An eyewear brand and a Buy One Give One Company born from the desire to combine the world of fashion with a meaningful and life-altering contribution.
We provide free training and support material for those distributing in the developing world - project planning, training courses for you and your organisation, vision charts, and data collection.
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.
Question and 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.
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.
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.
These slides complement the training guide and help trainers emphasise points and get the key information across in a visual presentation.
'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.
