A pair of glasses can change one’s life.
Among the 7.2 billion people living on this, 1.2 billion individuals live on less than a dollar each day. What’s more surprising is that 60% of those individuals (that’s 700 million people) suffer from some kind of vision problem.
These people struggle financially, and while there may be opportunities for better paying jobs, they can’t learn the skills they need because they can’t see. You see, people with vision problems are difficulty reading, writing, and learning skills for a new job. Many times, a pair of glasses is all they need, but they simply can’t afford it when they’re struggling financially.
Research has shown that people suffering from vision problems can increase their productivity by 30% if their vision is corrected. Correcting their vision also helps to increase their income by 20% since they can learn new skills, increase productivity, and hold better paying jobs.
