This paper analyzes the global prevalence of refractive error as the top cause of vision impairment, and explores future solutions that could be implemented to eradicate the issue. The practice of donating both recycled and ready-made eye glasses/spectacles is discussed, in addition to the VOSH groups that provide these resources and their public health outlooks.
