Stanton Optical Partners with Charity Vision to Aid World Vision
Our vision at Stanton Optical is to become the country’s leading customer-centric eye care provider by anticipating each customer’s needs and offering highly personalized, low cost products that match their unique lifestyle. We also strive to bring value to the world we live in. One of the ways in which we aim to give back to the communities we serve and the world we live in, is by partnering with the non-profit organization, Charity Vision, and aiding their cause to fight and stop the blindness epidemic.
About Charity Vision
Charity Vision aims to bring sight back to those in need and suffering from vision loss. According to Charity Vision, blindness affects over 39 million people around the world and 245 million other people suffer from low vision. Their mission is to “empower local physicians and create a sustainable solution to the blindness epidemic.” Blindness not only affects the individual, but their families as well, since in most cases the family members become the primary caregiver for that person. Charity Vision believes that by empowering the local physician and providing them with the necessary tools to combat blindness they will not only fight blindness, but they will also bring hope to those communities. To the individuals suffering from vision loss in these communities, a pair of prescription glasses can make a big difference in their lifestyle.
Stanton Optical’s Contribution
In order to help Charity Vision’s mission in combating the blindness epidemic, every month Stanton Optical donates an average of 400+ new eyeglass frames to the charity. Since 2014, we have donated over 17,500 frames (and counting). These frames get sent to the charity’s main offices in Utah, and from there the frames are shipped out wherever they are needed the most throughout the world. Our donated frames end up at various locations around the world including Central America, South America, Africa, the Middle East and Indonesia.
