In addition to making commitments toward its sustainability, British designer Pala contributes to global charity Vision Aid Overseas with every pair ordered.

For every pair of sunglasses sold, we give back to eye-care programmes in Africa by providing grants to vision centres, dispensaries and screening programmes. To date, thousands of sight-impaired people have had their lives changed and their ability to earn an income enhanced thanks to receiving a pair of prescription glasses.
Giving back is at the heart of what we do, helping to tackle a global problem by providing grants directly to eye-care projects across Africa. Eyes are the second most complex organ after the brain with more than one million nerve fibres connecting each eye to the brain and each eye’s resolution a mighty 576 megapixels. Find a camera with that kind of resolution! Sadly over 640 million people are unable to access the eye-care they need. Crucially, a pair of spectacles can be an invaluable economic tool providing empowerment for the wearer. They enable reading, learning and access to better education, plus provide a chance to operate a machine, or to thread a needle and improve overall job prospects. Access to this is vital.
