The Gift of Sight
The Gift of Shoes The Gift of Shoes

With every pair of eyewear you purchase, TOMS will help give sight to a person in need. One for One™.

The scope of visual impairment is staggering, affecting 285 million people worldwide. But the effectiveness of treatment is encouraging. Solutions are available to prevent and correct 80% of visual impairment.

Your TOMS Eyewear purchase helps restore sight to an individual through sight-saving surgery, prescription glasses, or medical treatment. With restored vision, individuals can return to school or work. Adults are able contribute to the household and no longer require extra care. And children can refocus in school.

At TOMS, we’re committed to supporting sustainable eye care. That’s why our Sight Giving invests in clinics and hospitals and the people who work in them. With the help of Seva Foundation, our lead Sight Giving Partner, we give to locally based organizations that train residents to provide quality, professional eye care.

TOMS has helped restore sight to more than 250,000 individuals around the world. One for One™.
