Thank You for Making a Difference!


Dear Partners and Friends, 

Over the past 15 years, RestoringVision has been able to bring clear vision to more than 10 million people in impoverished communities across the world. As you know, this requires an all-hands-on-deck approach. We wouldn't have been able to achieve this without you, our partners, who take glasses to the field and distribute them to people in need, and our sponsors and donors, who accelerate this work. To all of you, thank you! 

We’ve also been working closely with optical organizations, advocacy groups, and thought-leaders to raise awareness and develop collaborations that open up access to vision care for the world’s most disenfranchised. We are thrilled that our common cause is now gaining much-needed attention and momentum and would like to share this with you. Below are some exciting updates, including recent media coverage and one of the most exciting initiatives in vision health.

At RestoringVision, we’re excited to be a part of this growing global movement with you in an effort to transform the lives of people with near vision impairment. Thanks again for all you do to support this mission!

Best wishes,

Mark Sachs, Founder, RestoringVision

STORIES FROM THE FIELD
"This past April, I had the opportunity to provide reading glasses to many people in Honduras. While the simple eye exam lasted only a few moments, the impact that the gift of reading glasses had on almost 200 people will last for a lifetime." – Sherri S. Christ United Methodist Church, 2018.
