PROSPER, a recent health intervention study, found that providing tea pickers in India with reading glasses increased their productivity by up to 32%. Increased productivity directly correlates to higher wages for the workers. This finding speaks to the meaningful impact that reading glasses have on a person's life.

October 11 is World Sight Day. This annual day of awareness brings global attention to blindness and vision impairment. This year's call to action is #EyeCareEverywhere. In the coming weeks, we'll be reaching out to you with ways to celebrate World Sight Day with RestoringVision.
"We traveled into the mountains to the town of Mombin Crochu, Haiti, to provide training to traditional birth attendants. They were very excited to receive the glasses. Many at the training were over 50 years of age, so a time when reading glasses are needed. Also, babies are often born at night so any help seeing was greatly appreciated by the trainees. It was one of the highlights of the week to receive glasses. Thank you so much for the work you do."
