#BuySightGiveSight impact in 2015

Subscribe

As many of you may know, Jonas Paul Eyewear was inspired by co-founders, Ben and Laura Harrison, as they were on a mission to find stylish kids glasses for their visually impaired son, Jonas. They noticed upon searching that there were limited choices for children's glasses and decided to create a company that not only provides fashion-forward eyewear for their child, but also gives back to those in need of corrective eye surgery or a pair of glasses where these options may not be available.

Ben and Laura remember how helpless they felt when their son was born blind and they actually had access to doctors who can provide Jonas the potential for sight. They knew they wanted to pass this blessing along to those who didn’t have access to these doctors with their #BuySightGiveSight program.

Jonas Paul Eyewear has partnered with Restoring Vision and CBM International to bring vision to a person in need either through corrective surgery or by providing prescriptions glasses to children in need.
