Eyefly, the online fashion eyewear retailer for men and women, announces today its launch of a social responsibility effort by pledging to donate one frame for every frame they sell to the Brien Holden Vision Institute Say Eye campaign.
Professor Brien Holden, CEO of Brien Holden Vision Institute spoke enthusiastically about the new partnership with Eyefly saying, “We believe at Brien Holden Vision Institute that everyone, no matter where they live, should have access to affordable, quality eye care. We know the link between blindness, vision impairment and poverty is irrefutable – and sadly in excess of 640 million people globally are still unnecessarily vision impaired or blind because they don’t have access to an eye examination and a pair of glasses. We know providing eye care for such an immense number of people requires an urgent and massive response and I’m excited to say our new collaboration with Eyefly will assist us in this ambitious goal. The support for our work offered through the Eye Give program will provide us with capacity to continue to develop sustainable programs and a world where uncorrected refractive error no longer prevents children from learning, parents from providing for their families and the elderly from living independent lives.”
The partnership between these two organizations kicks off their like-minded mission to spread the word and vision to those in need. To learn more please visit Eyefly.com and Brien Holden Vision Institute.
