WHAT WE DO
The Marc Jaiden Project is a community movement that transforms lives by engaging eye care specialists, sponsors, supporters and individuals with one goal in mind – to provide
VISION WITH HEART. No one should ever be limited by poor vision, and that is why we provide vision care to the community in need, locally and globally. Together, we help restore eyesight, provide eyewear and prevent vision loss.
When vision is limited, the incidence of depression increases and reliance on family, friends and community service doubles. Poor vision leads to lower rates of employment, greater social isolation and emotional distress. The impact of poor vision is greater than the disability burden for breast cancer, prostate cancer, melanoma, and HIV/AIDS combined. Considering these factors, it is little wonder that low vision ranks alongside cancer as the health issue people fear most. Almost five million people in America today lack access to glasses. This means that 15% of the population cannot effectively learn or work properly. Globally, about 315 million people don’t have access to visual health. The Marc Jaiden project is determined to change this.
The Marc Jaiden Project has provided eye screenings to over 25,000 individuals, eye exams to over 18,500 and proper eyewear to over 15,000.
