Live Eyewear donates UV eye protection

Article

Live Eyewear has donated more than 800 polarized clip-ons, valued at almost $28,000, to the non-profit RestoringVision.org.

San Luis Obispo, CA-Live Eyewear has donated more than 800 polarized clip-ons, valued at almost $28,000, to the non-profit RestoringVision.org, the company announced.

RestoringVision.org sources reading glasses and sunglasses, and supplies them at a nominal charge to groups going on missions to developing countries and domestic groups serving the underprivileged. Since the organization began in late 2003, it has supplied more than 1.2 million glasses to people around the world. Live Eyewear’s donation will be sent on a Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity mission to Guatemala later this year, according to Mark A. Sachs, director, RestoringVision.org.

"We're very excited to be part of such a significant cause,” said Dave Dean, vice president of marketing for Live Eyewear. “We are extremely proud to be in a position to help those less fortunate and provide them with protective sunwear that will not only improve their quality of life today, but also help to reduce the chances of UV-related eye disorders in the future.”
