Project Gafas was founded by Edgar A. Domenech, under the direction of Dr. Z. Katie Luo
. Launched in 2017, the eye glasses donation program provides free eyeglasses to less fortunate people around the globe. Patients who donated their gently used glasses are directly helping people in Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Kenya, Peru, Guatemala and more. The glasses are sent directly to the clinics and matched with patients.
There are two ways you can help!
Donate your glasses
Bring your gently used prescription eyeglasses, readers and sunglasses to the designated drop-off
location at Mass. Eye and Ear, Longwood at 800 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA, 02115.
