Our Programs

At New Eyes, our vision is to empower children and adults in the United States and overseas with the improved vision they need to pursue a better quality of life for themselves, their families and their communities.

New Eyes operates two programs to fulfill that vision:

  • We purchase new prescription eyeglasses through a voucher program for children and adults in the U.S. who cannot afford glasses on their own.
  • We accept, recycle and distribute donated glasses for poor people overseas.

Since our founding in 1932, New Eyes has helped more than 7,900,000 people in the U.S. and 87 countries around the world to see clearly.

We are thankful for the donors, grantors, volunteers, social service agencies, optical dispensers and vision missions that make it possible for New Eyes to improve the vision and lives of scores of people in need worldwide.
