General Vision Services Invites Clients to Give the Gift of Sight

Press Release ( - New York, NY - Jan 18, 2017 - General Vision Services (GVS) is proud to announce a partnership with RestoringVision in a world-wide effort to bring clear vision to people in need.

Giving the gift of sight is such a generous, meaningful thing to do! Just by scheduling an eye exam for themselves, our members can change the lives of those in need.

Myles Lewis, Chief Executive Officer

Right now 2.5 billion people suffer from uncorrected vision impairments. Nearly 544 million of these people live in developing nations and only need reading glasses. A pair of glasses can be a life-changer. Studies have shown that vision correction leads to a 35% increase in productivity and a 20% increase in wages. Since 2003, RestoringVision has supplied over 6.5 million glasses to people in 116 countries around the world.

Myles Lewis, GVS’ CEO, is honored to join forces with this humanitarian initiative. RestoringVision’s mission aligns perfectly with GVS’ commitment to accessible eyecare. “Giving the gift of sight is such a generous, meaningful thing to do!
