About the Organization

OneSight is dedicated to fueling potential by helping people see clearly. By creating access to quality eye exams and glasses in underserved communities worldwide, we are leading the way to close the global vision care gap for the 1.1 billion people who need glasses but lack access. Through a combination of charitable vision clinics and self-sustaining, permanent vision centers, we are focused on finding and implementing the best solution for each community in 49 countries and counting. 

Driving a comprehensive solution in Rwanda is an organizational priority for 2019-2020. This includes the expansion of vision care access to populations not yet served by the existing 15 vision centers and one manufacturing lab that have opened since 2015. In cooperation with the Ministry of Health, OneSight is also working to test new outreach models, to optimize measurement and reporting, and to spread awareness of the critical role vision care plays in improving the lives of Rwandans.
