1 in 4 students in the United States has an undiagnosed vision problem. Studies have shown that glasses help with reading comprehension, and boost learning by up to twice as much. They can also help kids stay in school, reducing dropout rates by 44% when students get the glasses they need. Since 1988, LensCrafters and OneSight have worked together to help students get the eye exams and glasses they need to succeed in school and beyond.

What we believe
Closing the vision care gap
1.1 billion or 1 in 7 people around the world has no way to get an eye exam or pair of glasses— we call that the Vision Care Gap. That means living in a world that is permanently out of focus.
The power of clear sight changes lives
Quite simply, when people see better they live better. Students can learn up to twice as much in school. Adults can earn up to 20% more and be 35% more productive. All thanks to a humble pair of glasses.
