EYElliance is a multi-sector coalition that drives the global strategy to close the gap in access to eyeglasses. With an affected population of over 2 billion, poor vision that can be corrected with a pair of glasses is according, to the New York Times, “the biggest health crisis you’ve never heard of.” EYElliance represents the next generation of systems change agents: practitioners whose experience working to grow and scale service delivery organizations has informed our decision to opt for a new set of tactics to solve the problem in its entirety. Doing so will result in over $227 billion restored to the global economy annually due to increased productivity in the working poor and it will also raise GDP by 0.2% from improved educational outcomes in. We are in active dialogue and collaborating with the WHO, World Bank, the World Economic Forum, USAID, the Global Partnership for Education, the International Finance Corporation, OPIC, and funded by the Skoll Foundation, the DRK Foundation, and the Aspen Institute.
