Vision Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit corporation devoted to providing
reading glasses to developing countries throughout the world.
Founded in 2008 by David Warren, Mission Vision aims to efficiently
deliver reading glasses, free of charge, to people who would
otherwise have no access to them. The developing world suffers
from a widespread shortage of reading glasses. And regardless
of their location, people over 35 lose their near vision due
to presbyopia, a natural effect of aging that can be treated
with over-the-counter reading glasses. Therefore, it is our
goal to provide this basic optical care in the form of a simple
purchase of reading glasses.
every dollar we collect, one pair of glasses will be purchased
and delivered to one of the various destinations by a partner
of Mission Vision. Since the summer of 2009, our glasses have
been delivered to more than fifteen countries in Africa, Central
America, South America, and Asia. This entirely student-run
organization has recently expanded to include a campus network
of various high schools and universities across the country,
which have joined the mission to bring the world back into
focus for these needy recipients.
