What can a pair of free glasses 👓  do? “This Christmas, as a family… We want to have a little joy for once and to take things smoothly,” says Maricel García. She’s a Queens resident whose vision had deteriorated. This fall, she received Rx glasses – with eye exam, frame, and all – from Tzu Chi’s Vision Mobile Clinic. “The faces are clearer and I can see people at a distance… My life’s changed.”

Watch our documentary, which showcases one of the many ways vision care programs like ours can empower the uninsured and underinsured – especially through the pandemic. And, see the power of teamwork & love as Tzu Chi Medical volunteers join forces with our brothers & sisters at Brigada de Esperanza NY. Together, we can create joy for families everywhere  – one pair of eyewear at a time.
