Our Foundation: 20/20 Quest
20/20 Quest is a National Vision, Inc. foundation chartered for the purpose of providing screenings, eye exams, eyeglasses and refractive error solutions to the optically underserved in both the United States and the developing world. We have delivered more than 8,000 eye exams and 9,000 free pairs of glasses to school children throughout the U.S. We have helped 180,000 people in 132 countries through mission work, and our Frames for the World division has helped tens of thousands more – made possible through frame donations from both frame manufacturers and optical chains.
“In our business life we devote ourselves to bringing low cost eye wear to cost conscious consumers throughout the United States. In our philanthropic life, we try to use our understanding of manufacturing and the optical supply chain as well as our many connections throughout the worldwide optical industry – to help make affordable new eyeglasses available to poorer people in the developing world.” -Reade Fahs, CEO, National Vision
The Global Issue: We strive to both create new solutions to the global problem of uncorrected vision problems, as well as partner with existing organizations to address that need. In particular we concentrate on refractive error solutions with eyeglasses. While estimates vary, it is clear that there are hundreds of millions of people on the planet that simply need a pair of eyeglasses to achieve good vision. In many cases these are people with lifelong refractive error issues, while many others with previous good vision lose visual acuity due to Presbyopia (near vision loss beginning at middle age). The two issues require different approaches and 20/20 Quest is committed to addressing both as aggressively as possible.
Annual Golf Invitational Event: During National Vision’s Vendor Conference, the industry comes together to participate in the National Vision Invitational Golf Tournament, which directly benefits 20/20 Quest. The funds raised provide support for both domestic and international outreach missions.
