About DOT Glasses

Our purpose is to make basic eye care affordable and accessible to everyone.

We manufacture and distribute an innovative technology that enables free eye testing and truly affordable eyeglasses to be sold/distributed to communities around the worl

Over 1 billion people globally need, yet cannot access, prescription eyeglasses. For example, of the 7.5 million Kenyans who need eye care, only 1.6 million are able to visit an eye care provider. This is made worse as even low-quality glasses can cost 20 USD. The impact of this is enormous. Without glasses it is challenging to earn or learn. A child without glasses is 3x more likely to fall behind at school!

Through developing a revolutionary design of eyeglasses and simplifying our lens concept, our distributors around the world are able to provide eyeglasses for 3-7 USD. The testing and assembly for each patient is done on-site within 5-10 minutes, without needing a vision care specialist. The glasses are sold through a diverse network of distribution partners in 6+ countries; predominantly Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Nepal and South Africa.
