Eyeglasses for Global Development: Bridging the Visual Divide, released by EYElliance and World Economic Forum, demonstrates how providing eyeglasses to those who need them can improve educational outcomes, increase productivity, and stimulate the global economy.

The report draws on expertise from over 35 interviews with eye care and education NGOs, health economists, private sector actors, and bi- and multilateral institutions to outline the guiding principles of successful models, identify barriers to scale, and provide opportunities for engagement and collaboration across sectors to help close the gap in access to eyeglasses.
