Eyes for the World (EFTW)
Everybody, all over the world, has the right to good eyesight.
EFTW is a project which works with Agora Club countries where they have a real need for glasses in the less privileged areas. It provides a screening program for large numbers of children, to identify those in need of spectacles. The EFTW eye specialist works with a local eye specialist who can assist where other eye problems are identified but cannot be helped by EFTW glasses.
The EFTW glasses are self-adjustable spectacles which allow users to alter the power of the lenses in order to correct their own eyesight. A small pump system fills the membrane between the double lenses of the spectacles with silicone, thus obtaining the desired correction.
The glasses are for young people between the age of 8 and 18. Each pair of glasses cost 20€, which allows the children to participate more fully in their school work and move around their environment safely, hence has a huge impact on their progress, achievements and confidence.
