Optometry Giving Sight

An estimated 1.2 billion people around the world are blind or vision impaired simply because they do not have access to an eye examination and a pair of glasses. Optometry Giving Sight (OGS) aims to permanently solve this problem by focusing on support for sustainable solutions in underserved communities. With generous support from donors, OGS provides grants to domestic and international organizations who focus on training local eye care professionals, establish optometry schools, and vision centers, and deliver eye exams and low or no-cost glasses. Offices are in Golden, Colorado and Calgary, Canada.
