New Eyes empowers children and adults in the United States and overseas with the improved vision they need to pursue a better quality of life for themselves and their communities.
11 million people in the United States struggle with uncorrected vision and have no resources to buy eyeglasses.
Uncorrected vision problems can seriously affect a person’s life.
For children, not having glasses can lead to poor self esteem, failure in the classroom, developmental delays, learning disabilities, social maladjustment, and even juvenile delinquency.
For adults, the lack of corrective glasses can mean the difference between employment and unemployment.
For seniors, poor vision can limit their ability to read medicine labels, navigate stairs and perform other tasks required to lead an independent life.
New Eyes purchases eyeglasses for needy residents of the U.S. We help when no one else can.
