Not only eyes are the window to your soul, they are also the window to the outside world. Through wear and tear, they can be debilitated and (almost) always, glasses are the ultimate solution. Let’s help the poor to improve their eyesight, thus improving their life.
Most people tend to underestimate eye problem and therefore, are not aware of its impact on life. Old people who have difficulties in seeing might be the precursor to a more serious problem. Whereas the young kids, who perform poorly at school, might be the sign of them having blurry vision.
In both cases, medical attention is essential and glasses are always the answer in most of the situation. To some poor family, eyeglasses are more of a luxury rather than a necessity.
Realizing this fact, Al-I’tisam launched a project we named Vision Care in order to provide free or subsidized glasses to those in need. If a person is found to have a serious eye condition, further examination will be conducted at an eye center.
As of 2016, this program is catered only in Malaysia especially in the Kelang Valley area.
