In this area, there are only 9 public optometrists serving over 7 million people. To compound the problem, many people from rural areas travel a full day to the nearest clinic to have their eyes checked, only to find there are no glasses available. Very few people in South Africa enjoy the luxury of ordering custom made glasses, to come from cities like Durban or Jo-Burg, because it is a very costly and lengthy procedure.
Louise-Lorraine is proud to partner with Focus on Vision to provide much needed eyewear for the people of South Africa. With each purchase you make, Louise-Lorraine will donate 10% of revenue towards purchasing needed eyeglasses for a person in Eastern Cape, Kwazulu, or Sowetoneed. It is our goal to give people all over the world the gift of sight – join us in our efforts.
