Olivia “Dibby” Bartlett.

NEW YORK—GoodVision USA, a non profit that brings the dignity and opportunity of good vision to impoverished populations worldwide, has added Olivia “Dibby” Bartlett as a member of its board of directors. The recent past president of the Opticians Association of America and chief operations manager at Todd Rogers Eyewear, Bartlett has tackled just about every job in the optical industry imaginable—from retail to professional to educational. She was voted one of Vision Monday’s Most Influential Women in 2018 and 2020, according to an announcement from the 501(c)(3) non-profit charity.

Blair Wong has been on the board since the inception of GoodVision USA in 2019. He is the department chair and founder of the Eye Health Technology and Opticianry department at the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology in Boston and taught optics at the New England College of Optometry. Wong is the executive director of the Opticians Association of Massachusetts and director of the American Board of Opticianry and National Contact Lens Examiners.
He redirected his career focus to ophthalmic optics education and eye health technology after being diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, an incurable disease leading to blindness, at the age of 26.  
Bartlett and Wong serve on the GoodVision board of directors with Kathy Smith, Karsten Wolf and Sally Hunt.  
A founding member of GoodVisionUSA, Smith is secretary of the board of directors. From the start, Smith was impressed by GoodVision’s sustainable way of improving lives through eye glasses. In 2019, she traveled with a GoodVision International team to Burkina Faso and was able to experience first-hand the nonprofit’s impact. She brings past experience in programming and data management.  
Wolf, who is the director of the GoodVisionUSA Board, is also a board member of the organization’s parent organization, EinDollarBrille e.V. Germany. His responsibilities there include human resources, law, and information technology. He has a master’s degree in economics and organizational science and has worked in public institutions and non-profit organizations all his life.
Wolf is highly committed to GoodVision’s twin goals of providing high-quality eyecare and glasses for people in underserved communities and creating local infrastructure that strengthens communities and sustains jobs. 
Treasurer Hunt also joined the GoodVision USA board of directors in 2022. Following a long career in operations management, project management, software development, system analysis, computer programming, and customer support, she brings a vast and valuable skill set to GoodVision USA. In her first year on the board, she has already improved GoodVision’s record keeping and upgraded its financial infrastructure.
