EYECARE: A Greater Vision RestoringVision Launches New Brand Identity and Website, Ushering in a New Era for the Global Health Nonprofit By Staff Thursday, September 22, 2022 12:18 AM SAN FRANCISCO—RestoringVision is unveiling today the launch of its new brand identity and website as the global health nonprofit ushers in a new era of scaling its vision programs to empower millions of people living in impoverished communities worldwide. Since RestoringVision’s founding nearly 20 years ago, the global nonprofit has evolved to become a leader in creating equitable access to vision services and eyeglasses for millions of people in need. The new brand identity reflects the organization’s commitment to scale its work and solve the global vision crisis, the company said.Pelin Munis, Ph.D., executive director of RestoringVision said, “With more than 20 million people impacted thus far by RestoringVision’s work, accomplished in partnership with our unparalleled network of 2,500 NGOs and government agencies worldwide, the momentum continues to build as we remain fiercely committed to solving the global vision crisis. The World Health Organization reports over 1 billion people lack access to the vision care and glasses they need to see clearly. "An astounding 81 percent of those individuals only need a pair of reading glasses to have their vision impairment corrected. While RestoringVision now has a new modern look and a website facilitating increased engagement, our mission remains the same: to empower lives by restoring vision for millions of people in need who live on less than $2 a day,” Munis said. RestoringVision’s new brand identity and website can be experienced here. The new logo visually embodies this moment in time for the global and vision health communities, representing RestoringVision’s position and commitment to solving the global vision crisis, the company said. “RestoringVision’s work and vision interventions are uniquely situated at the intersection of global health, education and economic development,” said Kevin Hassey, board chair of RestoringVision. “Sight is at the center of solving many of our world’s greatest challenges, which was elevated even more so by the United Nations in 2021 with its resolution, Vision for Everyone by 2030. This call to action aims to accelerate advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals by creating access to vision services and eyeglasses for all.” “The World Health Organization reports that restoring someone’s sight is the single most cost-effective health intervention to reduce poverty,” Munis said. “As we accelerate RestoringVision into its next era of empowering people worldwide with the gift of sight, the economic impacts of our work are clearer than ever. "Research shows that when an adult worker’s vision is restored with corrective eyeglasses, there is an increase in their productivity by up to 32 percent. This can be correlated to an increase in income by up to 20 percent.” RestoringVision partners with a network of more than 2,500 NGOs and governments. The organization has reached more than 20 million people globally in over 144 countries since the organization’s inception in 2003.
