Hundreds of millions of children in schools around the world need vision correction to see clearly. But in the Global South, very few can get it. If you cannot see the board or read a book, it’s almost
impossible to learn, limiting your opportunities to find good work and build a better future.
From teachers to tailors, scientists to security guards, clear vision is important in all kinds of jobs. But by around age 40, almost all of us start to experience deterioration in our near vision. Those who can’t access vision correction risk losing not just their sight, but their ability to provide for their families.
