Zeal Optics, pioneers in eyewear innovation & cutting edge design, is proud to announce a new partnership with New Eyes for the Needy, an organization that purchases new prescription eyeglasses for poor children and adults living in the United States and recycles donated glasses for distribution to indigent people overseas. Zeal is currently collecting and donating all types of gently used eyewear to help support this organization: sunglasses, RX sunglasses, RX glasses, and frames.

“New Eyes for the Needy is dedicated to improving the vision of poor children and adults, and we truly believe in its mission,” says Wink Jackson, co-founder of Zeal Optics. “We are very excited to be working with such an important and successful organization.”

An example of their innovation can be see when Zeal partnered with Recon Instruments last year to create next generation of direct-to-eye communications technology that  will boast a number of groundbreaking features.  Click here to read about it.

Zeal Optics has a strong history of giving back and supporting organizations, charities, and environmental initiatives. Zeal actively works on reducing its carbon footprint by using recycled materials, reducing packaging, creating energy efficient office space, and implementing eco-friendly programs like Up-Cycle for customers.

Since its founding in 1932, New Eyes has brought improved vision and hope for a better future to more than 7 million people in the U.S. and around the world. New Eyes for the Needy is a non-profit, non-sectarian volunteer organization. Last year, New Eyes provided eyeglasses to 5,167 needy residents of the U.S. and 161,000 people in developing nations. Always at the forefront of innovative lens technology, Zeal Optics has earned the well-deserved reputation as the leader in sport performance eyewear. Zeal’s entire product line is available for purchase online and at select retailers nationwide.
