GoodVision’s Mission:  

Over 150 million people worldwide need glasses but cannot afford them. Children cannot learn, adults cannot work and care for their families. We want to change that. GoodVision USA works in Liberia to train optical specialists, conduct vision screenings and dispense eyeglasses to individuals without access to clear vision. We are affiliated with GoodVision International that works in ten developing countries internationally.  Everyone deserves the dignity and opportunity of clear vision.
