Who We Are
New Eyes empowers 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.
We improve the vision of children and adults in need by
- Purchasing new eyeglasses in the United States, and
- Recycling donated glasses for distribution in developing nations worldwide.
Since our founding in 1932, New Eyes has improved the eyesight of more than 7,500,000 people in the U.S. and around the world.
For about $58 and working through New Eyes, you can transform a person’s life. Each new pair of glasses purchased by New Eyes can help a child succeed in school, an adult secure a job, or a senior citizen read medicine labels and live more independently. Our recycled glasses bring clearer vision to scores of people living in poverty overseas.
New Eyes is strengthened by our partnerships with thousands of social service agencies, optical dispensers, and vision missions.
