Sightsavers teams up with DIFF Eyewear to protect sight

October 2019

Sightsavers has launched a partnership with charitable brand DIFF Eyewear to help save sight worldwide.

Launching on World Sight Day 2019, a percentage from every pair of DIFF glasses sold will be donated to Sightsavers to fund its work to protect sight.

In the past four years, DIFF has already helped to provide reading glasses to more than 1.2 million people through its charity links with vision partners. The latest partnership with Sightsavers will help to give the gift of sight to even more people, through eye examinations, surgery, glasses, medicine and more.

Sightsavers corporate relationships manager Ed Hennessy said: “We’re thrilled to have the support of DIFF. By purchasing stylish eyewear, DIFF customers will be helping Sightsavers to protect and restore sight and improve the lives of people with disabilities in some of the world’s poorest countries.”
