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)

With the help of donations, we were able to fundraise for a piece of equipment (PlusOptix) that has helped us screen 15 schools over the past couple of years. On average 15% of the kids are being referred to see an optometrist.

2. Eye testing

In 2017 we introduced eye testing in Masterton to help reduce the number of children missing out. With your donation, we have been able to continue this support for the children into 2018.

3. Providing glasses

This is the easy one! For every pair Mr Foureyes sells, a pair goes to a New Zealand child. We have helped 1 in 10 kids get glasses through the programme.

4. Follow up and monitoring

As of March 2018, we have returned to our first Masterton schools to repeat the screening, and continue our promise to be there for our tamariki!

More about us

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:

We are winding up for 2019  1 December 2019

It has been a great year supporting new schools and old - we have continued our growth in Wairarapa - we are booked out till mid-next year already. We also now provide eye exams for adults and it feeds back into our charity.

We have started our growth into the porirua region, and look forward to the new year.

We thought we would finish by showing you how your schools go the extra mile for you - Gina, principal at Featherston brought this young man in for an eye exam and here is him wearing them for the first time. Gina went the extra mile for her school kids, and there are so many others in schools that have helped us out to ensure that all kids get the glasses that they need.
