Buy a pair and give a pair with Paul McCarthy Optometrist and Seeing Eye to Eye

SETE little girl smallHere at Paul McCarthy Optometrist, we are great supporters of global vision charity Optometry Giving Sight (OGS) and we’re excited to announce that we have partnered with them so that you can support their ‘buy a pair and give a pair’ program, Seeing Eye to Eye.

Here’s how the program works:

  • when you buy a pair of glasses from Paul McCarthy Optometrist, we donate $5 on your behalf to Seeing Eye to Eye
  • your $5 can fund an eye test and a basic pair of glasses in some developing and under-resourced communities in places like Timor Leste, Papua New Guinea, the Pacific Islands, El Salvador, India and Sri Lanka
  • you’ll be helping children and adults open doors to education, work and future opportunities by giving them the gift of sight

Over 600 million people worldwide are blind or vision impaired simply because they don’t have access to an eye test and a basic pair of glasses. Perhaps you’ve not heard of Optometry Giving Sight? They have a wonderful website dedicated to their projects – have a look at it here
