let us introduce ourselves

Our Mission.

Eyes For The World® is an important non profit foundation and believes that everyone, all over the world, has the right to see well.

World health organizations do not always have solutions for this kind of problems.

Our challenge consists of helping these people in all corners of the world with self-adjustable glasses.

In collaboration with Center For Vision, who are responsible for the development of these glasses, we have committed ourselves to initiating projects worldwide together with ophthalmologists in order to help these people and especially children who suffer from poor vision.

we have a solution to the problem

The Solution.

Self-adjustable glasses allow users to alter the power of the lenses in order to correct their own eyesight. Fashionable and lighter glasses will also be available for young people between the age of 8 and 18.

Eyes For The World® wants to distribute as many glasses as possible all over the world with the help of ophthalmologists and School Based Projects in collaboration with Child Vision.

Our aim is to follow up our projects in order to guarantee that the relevant needs are perfectly fulfilled, and moreover we want to assure the donor that his/her money is well spent!

The Ad-spec glasses

These glasses are filled with Dow Corning optical fluid, so that the power can be determined by filling the membrane with silicone. This is how we obtain a positive or a negative lens. This technique has been invented by Pr. Jushua Silver.

we bring all glasses ourself
