One of 10 children would benefit from eyeglasses...


...One in 10,000 children in sub-Saharan Africa has access to eyeglasses they need.


Eyeglasses For Children appreciates that we have the privilege of having access to the most advanced health care system in the world. We recognize that the vast majority of the world is not so fortunate. We believe that one area where we can make lasting and powerful impact is in vision and eyesight. It has been estimated that up to half of the children in institutions for the blind in Africa can be made to read normal or large print with the help of glasses (J. Silver et al, Br J Ophthalmol, 1995). in conjunction with our sponsors have initiated an eyeglass program to do onsite screening and fitting of glasses for children in under-served sub-Saharan Africa.  The pilot program is focusing on school-aged children in Tanzania in 2019 with the aim of fitting 250 children with glasses in need.

Furthering the fund of knowledge...


Our research effort at is a multi-faceted approach in several areas: Neurological research, both clinical and basic research.


Neurological Research.

Neurological research has come a long way in the last 50 years, yet still remains a frontier that has endless bounds for further research and understanding.  We are exploring and supporting ways in which we can help increase the level of understanding to neurological research from clinical perspective. We are also looking at methods of the expansion of the field to other areas of medicine but with a focus on the neurological axis. Lastly and importantly, we focus are also focusing on the economic impact of advances in patient care to maximize value-based utilization of health care resources.

Research grants.

While is passionate about research and education in projects like patient safety and remote telemedicine delivery, there are many areas of research that can advance our mission of One. Life.  As such, we accept and will review requests for research grants in these and other areas that keep with our mission and goals. Requests must come from a researchers who have an academic affiliation with an advanced degree in a US institution. While all requests are reviewed, only a select number will be funded, and the decisions made by our research committee are final. There is no relationship between grant awards and utilization of products or services by our sponsors.
