TOMS and Seva bringing eye care to those who need it most

Seva is thrilled to be TOMS' lead Sight Giving Partner. With every pair of TOMS eyewear purchased, TOMS will help give sight to a person in need. One for One.TM

What started as chance meeting in Nepal with TOMS’ founder Blake Mycoskie, has turned into a multi-year partnership to restore sight for those who need it the most. Seva works with TOMS in 13 countries around the world, including the United States, restoring sight to children and adults. Together we focus on service delivery, quality, equity, working with local providers, and doing no harm to the existing ecosystem of eye health programs.

Through our 17 Sight Giving Partners, Seva and TOMS have restored sight to over 200,000 people. TOMS support goes toward medical treatments, eyeglasses, and sight restoring surgeries. Support for direct care services have allowed more people to access eye care by making it affordable, at a subsidized rate. You can read more about the people served through the sight giving model on TOMS.com.
