WHY GLASSES

Millions of people worldwide have no access to affordable glasses.
Seeing clearly changes a lot. Eyeglasses can help us live more comfortable, productive lives and eliminate avoidable hurdles, that people otherwise have to overcome day by day.

At OneDollarGlasses, our goal is to make affordable eyeglasses available to all who need them.  Our method of local production has the advantage of providing vital jobs to the regional population. The glasses are sold at low prices and the revenue is used to purchase more raw materials, hire staff and maintain a optical shop, creating a sustainable enterprise.
