Uncorrected Refractive Error is a significant public health issue, especially in Low and Middle-Income Countries(LMICs), because of limited availability and affordability of eye care services, and a general lack of awareness for the need of eye health by governments and consumers alike.

Our diversity
makes us stronger

In 2019, 22 organizations came together to form the Coalition for Clear Vision. These organizations represent many aspects of the eye health sector: businesses that manufacture and sell glasses and related services, social entrepreneurs, industry bodies, and nonprofit organizations.

starts with us

We are part of the system that is failing a billion people today. We recognize that we need to be the change we want to see in others.

Through joint understanding, knowledge management, and real time strategy development, the Coalition facilitates integrated perspective, over the individual, partial views of members, and leads to a shared systemic theory of change.
