GoodVision USA works to correct visual defects through the establishment of basic optical care programs in impoverished countries where access to eyeglasses is limited. The organization currently provides services in Liberia, with a concept encompassing local production, education, free vision tests, and instant fitting of durable custom glasses. Glasses are locally fabricated with durable spring steel wire frames. The glasses are sustainably produced on a bending machine and assembled at the point of delivery without the need for electricity. Vision screening and eyeglasses are distributed at a local medical clinic outside of Monrovia, Liberia and at outreaches to schools and remote villages. Local employees earn a living wage and have meaningful employment, with local technicians being trained for one year to learn optics, vision screening and dispensing skills.
