Calling all visionaries.

How can the whole world see? That’s the question we are determined to find answers to. We have achieved incredible things. We have walked on the Moon and driven on Mars. But somewhere along the way, we forgot about one of our most fundamental senses - sight. More than 700 years since spectacles were invented, 2.5 billion people suffer poor eyesight with no access to treatment.

A world where everybody could see would be a better, fairer, more productive, happier world. We invite anybody with new ideas and a desire for change to join us.

The problem is clear.

Impacting over 2.5 billion of us, vision problems affect us more than any other disability— impeding our ability to get an education, support our families and to build a better life. Changing this starts with you.

Share these facts and tell your friends why we need to help the world see.

The challenge is on.

The Clearly Champions.

To help make our mission successful, an independent group of global thinkers are uniting to bring energy and awareness to the challenge of solving the world’s vision problems.

Sir David Tang

"Access to good sight should not be a luxury. Radical new thinking is necessary to rectify this. The Clearly campaign is a catalyst for this, and will sharpen the sight of millions.”

James Chen

Founder of Clearly

"It's time to apply the type of innovation that powers Tesla, the efficiency that drives Amazon and the brand of ingenuity that runs Google - to our eyes."

Neil Blumenthal

Co-Founder & Co-CEO, Warby Parker

“Lack of access to glasses and eyecare impedes people from reaching their full potential. It’s a global issue that we can resolve today if we combine our efforts.”

Brian Doolan

CEO, The Fred Hollows Foundation

"Most of us never think about our sight until we have a problem. For many people around the world, that problem turns into a life sentence. The Clearly campaign is about saying that is unacceptable."

Dave Gilboa

Co-Founder & Co-CEO, Warby Parker

"Despite the fact that glasses were invented centuries ago, there remain almost 2.5 billion people who lack access to eyecare worldwide. Together we can take steps to address this issue."

Baroness Tessa Jowell

"This problem needs to be addressed with urgency, humanity and ingenuity. I am delighted, therefore, to support the generous commitment of James Chen and the Clearly campaign to lead action."

Keyur Patel

Chairman & Co-Founder, Fuse+Media Ltd

"This is a signal to the world's wealthiest people, corporations, and government agencies to acknowledge that each of them can make a difference in this world if there is heart and vision."

Hadeel Ibrahim

Founding Executive Director, Mo Ibrahim Foundation

"I remember vividly my first pair of glasses. My world was transformed. That is why I support the Clearly campaign and it's goal of better sight for all."
