IRIS Mundial

February is the IRIS Mundial Month

IRIS is proud to be the main partner of this international cooperation organization that aims to improve the visual health of disadvantaged populations in developing countries. During the month of February, all IRIS stores across Canada will give IRIS Mundial $ 10 per pair of glasses sold and the IRIS Ophthalmology Clinic will donate $ 50 per surgery. This woman wearing glasses is a patient IRIS Mundial helped during the 2018 Senegal mission.

Here are some interesting facts about visual health around the world and about the role played by IRIS Mundial.

75% of visual impairments around the world can be cured with glasses or surgeries, and 89% of the world’s eye diseases touch people living in developing countries.
