Help us to help NZ school kids thrive. Eyesight problems are a barrier to learning that we want to remove - one pair of glasses at a time.

The Foureyes Foundation helps to identify & treat New Zealand children with eyesight problems.

Foureyes Foundation is the charitable arm of online glasses store Mr Foureyes, which donates a pair of glasses for every pair they sell.

We work on:

1. Identifying eyesight problems (screening)

Our pilot programme at Titahi Bay School in Wellington showed a big unmet need - around 15% of the kids we screened needed follow up with an optometrist. We have successfully raised funds for a new piece of equipment that makes screening quick, easy and accurate.

2. Eye testing

In our pilot programme there was a big drop-off in kids making it to the optometrist for testing (even though it was free), so this is something we want to work on making as easy as possible. Additional funding now will increase the number of schools we can reach this year.

3. Providing glasses

This is the easy one! For every pair Mr Foureyes sells, a pair goes to a New Zealand child.

4. Follow up and monitoring

Kids eyesight can change rapidly, so it doesn't end when we hand over a pair of glasses. It's also important to be able to monitor and demonstrate the benefits that good eyesight can bring.

The Foureyes Foundation helps to identify & treat New Zealand children with eyesight problems.

Childhood is important. It builds the foundations for future health, education, employment, productivity and social success. Changes to technology like more screen time have put huge demand on our eyes. However, children are not always aware that they need glasses. As well as helping with vision, glasses can help solve symptoms like headaches, struggling to read and write (like writing letters backwards), and children losing motivation and concentration both in and out of class.

We work with schools and other charities to get glasses to children who need them the most. We are helped by Mr Foureyes, who gives us a free pair of glasses for every pair they sell (learn more here: https://mrfoureyes.co.nz/pages/buy-one-give-one)
