Project Gafas was founded by Edgar A. Domenech, under the direction of Dr. Z. Katie Luo. Launched in 2017, the eyeglass donation program provides free eyeglasses to less fortunate people around the globe. 

Patients who donate their gently used glasses are directly helping people in Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Kenya, Peru and more. The glasses are cleaned, read and sorted before being sent to the local clinics and matched with patients.

There are two ways you can help!
