Smithfield, RI–Think of all the old pairs of glasses and sunglasses buried in your dresser drawers and closets that you no longer wear because your prescription changed or they’ve gone out of style. Now think of someone in an impoverished nation who would need those glasses to work and survive.
Foster Grant had that same thought and has sprung to action to do its share.
The eyewear company, a division of FGX International, is giving people the power of sight by donating 1.5 million pairs of reading glasses and sunglasses to support Restoring Vision. The company’s charitable efforts supply much-needed eyewear to developing countries throughout the world.
“Many people who will be helped by this donation need reading glasses to perform nearby tasks such as reading and sewing that are critical to their well-being,” says Alec Taylor, FGX International.
The donation provides affordable solutions to severe eye conditions such as presbyopia, a condition where the eye’s ability to focus on near objects diminishes with age, as well as helping to fight cataracts and ptyergia. The sunglasses donated also provide protection from dust and smoke to those who live in tropical climates and typically work outdoors.
Despite the generous donation already made, Foster Grant and Restoring Vision are not stopping there. Throughout 2013, Foster Grant will donate one pair of reading glasses to Restoring Vision for each pair sold on the website as part of its “Pair for Pair” program.
