“See Better to Learn Better” is a free eyeglasses program in partnership with the Mexican government. The collaboration between the non-profit and Yves Béhar/fuseproject has lead to Collección Escolar 2010. A collection of customizable and iconic corrective eyewear that is specifically designed for students, ages 6-18 years old.
The glasses are designed with two part frames that are fully customizable with top and bottom colors that can be mixed and matched to fit all children’s personal choices.
The glasses, produced by Mexican eyeglass manufacturer Augen, are designed to be worn beyond the classrooms utilizing materials, advanced Gilamid plastic, with its hyper-flexible property, making them practically indestructible.
Students can also create their very own pair of glasses with their favorite styles, size and color combinations through the special options catalogue.
“The aim of “See Better to Learn Better” is to provide a solution to children in families that cannot afford the high cost of an eye exam and eyewear. The program gives a free eye exam administered in schools and students pick their own frames. The prescription and desired frames are produced locally by Augen, a Mexican company, and then delivered to the schools.” – fuseproject
