OneDollarGlasses

This is how people can see for the first time in their lifes.

Production

OneDollarGlasses are manufactured on site using a simple bending machine. Material cost: around $ 1.

Training

The people we train can make a living from the production and sale of glasses.

On-site care

Poor people often have no money to drive into the city. That’s why the OneDollarGlasses teams come to them in the village.

Children

Many children in developing countries leave school early – just because they cannot see properly.

Modular system

The pre-ground glasses can be clicked into the frame with a simple handle.

The Solution

OneDollarGlasses are manufactured on site using a simple bending machine. Material cost: around $1. The people we train can make a living from the production and sale of glasses.
