Limited edition glasses buy to help restore sight to blind

SPECSAVERS Bankstown is encouraging locals to visit in-store and purchase limited edition glasses and sunglasses, with $25 from each pair sold going to The Fred Hollows Foundation to continue their sight restoring work.

With the limited edition frames featuring the artwork of contemporary Aboriginal artist and proud Yuin woman, Rheanna Lotter, Specsavers is aiming to raise $250,000 as it celebrates 10 years of supporting The Fred Hollows Foundation’s work in Australia.
These donations, totalling over $4.1 million, have contributed to closing the gap in eye health by ensuring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people can access high quality, culturally safe and patient centric eye care.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adults are three times more likely to have vision loss or blindness than other Australians.
Specsavers Bankstown Optometrist, Mariella Coluccio says: “We’re so grateful to our local community for continuing to support us and The Fred Hollows Foundation. The 2021 limited edition frames featuring Rheanna Lotter’s artwork are just incredible, and we think the community will love them.”
