IMAGINE A LIFE WITHOUT SIGHT.

Vision is one of the most basic human senses and needs, yet it is inaccessible to far too many people. 

At Vision Interchange, we strive to provide everyone with the right to sight.

 

Our Mission

Established in 2014, we are a collaboration of like-minded individuals who believe that vision is one of the most important necessities of life. Underserved communities face tremendous difficulty in procuring vision health care services or resources for glasses and optical needs. Our mission is to provide free glasses and free vision health care to the underserved communities. We work with our partners and donors in supporting vision health care resources to the underserved demographics.


Eye exams and glasses cost an average of up to $600. What if it cost that much to taste, smell, hear, or feel well? The ability to see well should not be a luxury that few can have. It is a necessity that all need.
