Hundreds of millions of people lack the glasses they need. Eyejusters can help.
Our adjustable lenses allow users to simply adjust their glasses to suit their own eyes. We can help make clear vision accessible and affordable for everyone.
Over 670 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.
Clear vision is not a luxury. Vision impacts every aspect of life, limiting someone’s ability to work and learn, and affecting personal safety. Glasses have the potential to improve productivity by 35%, while increasing monthly income by 20%. Glasses also extend someone’s working life. WHO calculates that uncorrected poor vision has a huge cost to the global economy of $200bn annually.
How We Help
Eyejusters overcome the need for optometrists by allowing users to adjust the lenses to correct own vision. What’s more, Eyejusters lenses can be re-adjusted when vision needs change and shared among family members.
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. Our glasses can be brought into the home of those who need them, reaching people who have never had access to eyewear before.
Give & Get
You can personally support our work with 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 the projects worldwide.
Let's Work Together
If your organisation is interested in working with Eyejusters in the developing world, please get in touch! You can buy a distribution kit or apply to receive glasses donated by our customers through Give & Get.
Distribution of adjustable glasses can be integrated within existing operations, helping to increase impact and reach. Dispensing is straightforward and can be learned after a short training.
Eyejusters are successfully distributed alongside a range of products and services. As our glasses are desirable and offer value for money, there are also opportunities for Base-of-the-Pyramid resellers. We have identified the following example partners, both charitable and for-profit:
Networks of micro sales entrepreneurs or travelling sales events
General retail, both small independent outlets and larger chains
Pharmacies and chemists
Medical outreach services
Educational institutes, like secondary schools, skills training, adult literacy
We’ve worked with diverse partners around the world. The ideal route to market will differ per country or region and we welcome all potential partners to contact us: firstname.lastname@example.org
We work with various charitable partners around the world.
Our charitable funders include Karmoie: a luxurious eyewear brand and 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.
‘Tumbling E’ vision charts are an essential part of the dispensing process, and can be used for both literate and illiterate recipients. To provide you with clarity and confidence, both near and distance vision charts can be provided complementary to the Eyejusters training materials.
