I always took my vision for granted, that was until I met my husband. I never knew anyone close to me with less than stellar vision. My husband on the other hand had serious vision issues. You couldn’t really tell until you get to know him a bit but he has a terrible time seeing things that are far away.

My eldest son now has a slight issue seeing things far away as well. Now I’m super grateful because as of right now, my vision is perfect. As a family we are lucky to have access to healthcare and glasses whenever we need them. OneSight is making it possible for underserved communities worldwide to have access to vision care as well.
