What is optometry giving sight?
NUVO has partnered with Optometry Giving Sight (www.givingsight.org), the only global fundraising initiative that specifically targets the prevention of blindness and impaired vision due to uncorrected refractive error – simply the need for an eye exam and a pair of glasses. More than 600 million people around the world are blind or vision impaired because they do not have access to the eye examination and glasses they need. Donations allow Optometry Giving Sight to fund the solution by supporting programs that train local eye care professionals, estblish vision care centres, and deliver eye care services.
Our office is proudly contributing towards the World Sight Day Challenge, a campaign to help the over 600 million people in the world who are blind or vision impaired simply because they don't have access to an eye exam and a pair of glasses. Preventable blindness is a solvable problem and we are proud to help give better vision to those in need. Most people are surprised to learn that for as little as $5, someone living in an underserved community can be provided with an eye exam and a pair of glasses to transform their lives. Everyone can make a huge difference and we are thrilled to be contributing to universal eye health. As part of our commitment we are donating $5 for each pair of glasses sold in October. We are also accepting cash donations! No amount is too small!
