Anthropose is a ‘social-good’ company based in Nepal. With every 10 pairs of sunglasses sold, one person in a rural village in Nepal gets a free cataract surgery. Cataract is the clouding of the lens that affects the quality of vision and a simple cataract surgery only takes 15 minutes and restores eyesight within 24 hours. However, access to healthcare remains low and the inability to afford this surgery is very high. Anthropose is giving eye sight back to people who cannot afford the surgery. You can read more about it here.
