Vision Aid Overseas, helping the world to see...

Clear plastic reading glasses, 75p is donated to Vision Aid Overseas with each purchase


Vision aid overseas is a charity dedicated to helping people in the developing world whose lives are blighted by poor eyesight, particularly where spectacles can help.

VAO works by sending abroad teams of volunteer optometrists and dispensing opticians who set up clinics, screen large numbers of patients and provide appropriate spectacles.

Many enter VAO clinics blind. They are provided with spectacles and leave 20 minutes later able to see for about the cost of a sandwich.

Started in 1985, VAO has provided 600,000 eye tests and given over 300,000 people the ability to see with a pair of spectacles.

We have recently taken delivery of the pictured style, frame ref. VAO Clear, with 75p donated to this cause with every pair purchased.
