What Is the Gift of Sight Program?

Help more people achieve their potential by giving the Gift of Sight. As a charity for the blind, our Gift of Sight program helps provide education and opportunities for parents to better provide for their families. Through our giving program, we have transformed lives by providing access to eye health care for children in schools across countries such as India, Nepal, Ghana, Ethiopia, Kenya and Zambia. This collaborative program was developed to remove barriers to access to clean water, simple eye examinations and prescription eyeglasses.

How to Donate Eyeglasses

Although Operation Eyesight is no longer collecting used eyeglasses, there are other ways you can donate eyeglasses to those who may not be able to afford a pair on their own. Providing eyeglasses to individuals is vital to our inclusive, integrated approach to eye health care. We work with partners in South Asia and Africa to establish vision centers that offer vision exams and custom eyeglasses fittings.

Providing a brand new pair of prescription eyeglasses costs just $20 and significantly improves the lives of individuals with vision impairment. Your $20 eyeglasses donation not only helps our vision centers come closer to being self-sustaining, but provides endless opportunities for success to individuals.
