4eyes Foundation aims to improve vision and thus educational and economic potential, and psychosocial wellbeing of the one billion people worldwide who are visually impaired simply because they lack access to affordable glasses.
Most of these people live in remote and developing communities, and can't get glasses because there are no professionals to test their eyes, they are geographically isolated, and/or they can't afford glasses.
The 4eyes Vision Kit was invented by Dr Sarah Crowe, a Sydney-based ophthalmologist, to address this pressing need. It is a transportable kit which contains everything a layperson needs to test for and dispense customised, affordable glasses on the spot.
Pilot projects have been undertaken in Papua New Guinea with great success. New projects are currently underway in indigenous Australian communities and Timor Leste. With funding, the 4eyes Vision Kit can be introduced far and wide to communities in need. Any support you can give would be so greatly appreciated.
