20/20 Quest, a National Vision sponsored charitable foundation, was chartered for the purpose of providing screenings, eye exams, eyeglasses and refractive error solutions to the optically underserved in both the United States and the developing world. 20/20 Quest has partnered with organizations and individuals who have impacted the lives of millions of people both domestically and around the world. Our Frames for the World program has helped more than 320,000 individuals receive glasses through October 2018 – made possible through frame and lens donations from manufacturers, optical chains, and individuals.
The Global Issue: We strive to both create new solutions to the global problem of uncorrected vision problems, as well as partner with existing organizations to address that need, particularly concentrating on refractive error solutions with eyeglasses. While estimates vary, it is clear that there are hundreds of millions of people on the planet that simply need a pair of eyeglasses to achieve good vision. In many cases these are people with lifelong refractive error issues, while many others with good vision initially lose visual acuity due to Presbyopia (near vision loss beginning at middle age). These two issues require different approaches and 20/20 Quest is committed to addressing both as aggressively as possible.
