RE-SPECS Frames provides free sight tests & affordable glasses to the underprivileged at our wheelchair-accessible Ra’anana-Kfar Saba Eye Clinic in the heart of Israel. As the only nationwide organization dedicated to providing eyeglasses to vulnerable populations from across the length & breadth of the country (regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, geographical location), we serve low-income families, disadvantaged/abused women, at-risk kids & teens, people with disabilities, senior citizens, Holocaust survivors, terror victims, new olim suffering financial difficulties, single-parent families & lone soldiers. At our clinic, we collect & restore gently used & surplus frames, sell them & provide customized lenses for a nominal price. Visually-impaired people cannot function properly in their day-to-day lives, so we developed a cost-effective program to help them. Compared to the high cost of eyeglasses in the Israeli market – often forcing those living in vulnerable circumstances to do without (!) – we offer them affordable eyeglasses. Patients undergo eye tests & obtain their glasses in our regular-looking store. Kids see their parents “paying” instead of receiving handouts, which greatly enhances the family’s healthy functioning. On occasion, those unable to pay anything are issued a price quotation invariably far below any quotation from a for-profit optician which is presented to their social worker with a request for funding. It goes without saying that we have witnessed time and again the immeasurable positive impact on our patients? lives.
