SOWETO, South Africa—Now that it’s been in operation for over a year, the “We See” Child Eye Health Project has proven effective at helping some of the six out of ten children in South Africa with reduced vision who need glasses but don’t have them.
“The teacher legitimized that they were actually performing better in school,” said Matthew Alpert, OD, after returning to Soweto to see the success of the project.
“As a company whose mission is to help people see, we also want to help people see what’s possible,” said Jill Novelo, manager, VSP Global public relations. “Our goal is to help provide eye health services to 30,000 children over a three-year period to reduce uncorrected visual impairment issues by 90 percent.”
Nike Vision South Africa’s managing director Grant Hoyle said, “We now have a fixed venue. If you look at how quickly that transition has taken place, it’s a credit to all the partners involved and how genuine they are in wanting to see this happen.”
Watch the video to see what’s been achieved by the “We See” Child Eye Health Project partners—VSP Global, Nike Vision, Optometry Giving Sight, and the Brien Holden Vision Institute—and why Alpert predicted, “the sustainability of the clinic cements the foundation of us being able to bring this to even more communities across the globe.”
