Based on the goal of our founder J. Kevin White—U.S. Marine (Ret.) and Naval Academy graduate—Global Vision 2020 was founded to end the world’s epidemic of poor vision. He invented the innovative USee™ vision-screening tool to provide prescription eyeglasses to people in the most remote areas on earth. Global Vision 2020’s system is lightweight. The training is simple. And clear sight can be provided in only minutes. Our partners have delivered 36,000 pairs of prescription eyeglasses in 38 countries around the world. That is just the beginning.

It Couldn’t Be Simpler


It’s so simple. All I have to do is put the USee™ on, look at the eye chart a few feet away, and dial through the lens bar until I see clearly. It’s a snap…


…Literally. The color and number on the lens bar corresponds with a lens in the kit. They are then “snapped” together by a trained refractionist.


Now that I wear glasses I can see clearly! I walk away with the specs and microfiber bag to protect and clean them. It’s as easy as #dialsnapwear!

This Is How It’s Done

The USee™ is a unique screening tool that enables the delivery of corrective eyeglasses. Clear sight is the gateway to safety, education, prosperity, and self-sufficiency. The USee™ provides the opportunity to serve 2.5 billion people who lack access to optometrists. It enables virtually any trained refractionist to perform a visual acuity test and deliver prescriptive eyeglasses.
