For every pair of Hawaiian Lenses purchased by you, we donate a pair of sunglasses with readers to someone in need. Be assured that you not only get a high quality pair of sunglasses with readers, but you also help to support a great cause!
Hawaiian Lenses has made donations to various organizations here in Hawaii, and to our local Lion’s Club Chapter. To date, hundreds of pairs of sunglasses have been donated in our commitment to give back to our island community.
In 2014 we partnered with Lions In Sight of California and Nevada, a Division of Lions Club International. Founded in 1987, it has distributed nearly 6.5 million pairs of used or discontinued eyeglasses to 67 countries.
Imagine working in a small village as a craftsperson supporting your family until your eyesight slowly begins to change. Over time you can no longer see the fine details of your wood carving? Or maybe a fisherman no longer able to see well enough to tie the hook? A pair of glasses could make all the difference, but for some it’s just not affordable. Our donations have gone to people in need in Mexico, Sri Lanka and Guatemala. Hawaiian Lenses is humbled to be a part of this important program. Visit here for more info.
Approximately 161 million people in this world are visually disabled or blind and approximately 2 billion people need eyeglasses. Unfortunately, in developing countries, most of the people cannot afford proper eye care. This limits their vision, their ability to work and their quality of life.
