Our vison at SightsUnseen is to provide eye glasses to the people of the developing world that do not have access to eye care or the ability to purchase prescription glasses. Our focus is on providing basic eyewear that can be rapidly adjusted to the individual, is sturdy and reliable, and inexpensive.
We provide stand-alone, teaming and support capabilities to reach countries in the developing world where there is a need. SightsUnseen conducts fundraising and works directly with international, governmental and corporate sponsors to procure and deliver glasses worldwide.
SightsUnseen was established by Kelly Broome, an experienced U.S. Army officer who has supported humanitarian, disaster relief and development missions in Africa, Central Asia, the Balkans, the Middle East and Latin America. Kelly experienced first-hand how medical issues that were easily addressed in the developed world became major challenges to education, health, progress and opportunity in the developing world.
