Eyeglasses for Global Development: Bridging the Visual Divide

Eyeglasses for Global Development

This report not only lays out the evidence that correcting vision with glasses has a profound impact on socioeconomic development, but also highlights validated, scalable models. The challenge is: how can the concerned actors work together to address the barriers to systemic change, take these models to scale and close the global gap for those needing eyeglasses? The report’s advisory panel recommends engaging multiple sectors to dismantle the primary supply-and-demand barriers, and create new opportunities for collaboration across sectors to solve the problem at scale.
