The Eyeglasses Project is a Vancouver-based, volunteer-led initiative whose mission is to: Make Eyesight Accessible. We bring together skilled and resourceful people to help the vulnerable get access to eye examinations and prescription eyeglasses. The skilled include optometrists and other eye care professionals. The resourceful includes community service organizations and sponsors. The Eyeglasses Project was initially founded with the goal to provide the marginalized who reside in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside with a basic tool, eyeglasses, to help them live more productive lives. Our renewed goal is to serve 1,000,000 disenfranchised people across Canada.
