For a 15th year, IRIS stores across Canada are proud to donate $10 per pair of glasses sold during the month of February to IRIS Mundial. The funds raised will be used for the organization’s activities, which since 2001 have helpedmore than 97,500 people who do not have access to eye care.

A pair of glasses or a surgery can change a person’s life!

1.1 billion people live with vision loss (IAPB) because they do not have access to basic eye care services. 90% of vision loss is preventable or treatable.

Thanks to its interventions, IRIS Mundial helps thousands of people to see the world better, by raising awareness about visual health and making vision care, glasses and eye surgery accessible to the most disadvantaged. Visit their website or the IRIS Mundial Facebook page for more details.
