The following is a a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/OneSight. Opinions expressed are that of my own.
Imagine not being able to see your child or grandchild clearly for the first time. Now imagine being given a book and not being able to see the words.
According to OneSight.org, 1 in 7 people across the globe can’t get access to an eye exam and a pair of glasses. This is not just a problem in another part of the world, it could easily be a parent, brother or sister, niece or nephew, or even your own child. However this statistic can be corrected by donating to OneSight, which in turn will help give 20 million in need access to an eye exam and a pair of glasses by 2020.
Even a $1 makes a difference for the 1.1 billion without access to vision care.
OneSight.org, an organization that has been in existence for over 25 years, takes donated funds and creates community partnerships through Sustainable Vision Centers, Vision Care Clinics, all while utilizing eye care professionals, industry experts, volunteers, and partners.
My children happen to have 20/20 vision, but their cousins and grandparents would not be functioning at their best without the benefit of eyeglasses.
The ability to see properly is not something to be taken for granted either, they would not be able to perform at work, school, or in their daily lives without access to vision care.
