1/4 Of Everybody On Earth Needs Glasses!

This photograph is of a child pointing to his glasses in the country of India

INTERESTING EYEWEAR FACT: According to a study supported by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2012, roughly 1 in every 4 people on earth need glasses (or some sort of visual correction). That means if we consider the world population to be ~7 billion people, 1.75 billion people are most likely going to be bespectacled. When you take into account the natural requirement for correction as a person ages, that number only gets bigger. Hopefully, all these folks will find us here at Vered Optical … ;)
