Over 150 million people worldwide do not have access to glasses. As a result, such people are unable to work, leading to lack of income. At INVU, we believe that quality eyewear should be available for everyone.
That is why, with each purchase in our shop, we donate the value of one frame to people in need in Myanmar through the project "One Dollar Glasses Switzerland".
"One Dollar Glasses" was founded by Martin Aufmuth, driven by the idea to offer glasses with material costs of one dollar to people in poorer countries. He brought his idea to life by developing a bending machine that can be operated simply, allowing local workers to be trained to manufacture the glasses.
The glasses themselves consist of a light, flexible spring steel frame, and are made of unbreakable materials. The material costs: around 1 US dollar! And with that, "One Dollar Glasses" provides a two-sided benefit; providing local workers with valuable income while providing those in need access to glasses.
In 2015, the association "One Dollar Glasses Switzerland" was founded, with the aim of making the idea of "One Dollar Glasses" known in Switzerland.
"One Dollar Glasses Switzerland", with its focus on communities in Myanmar, has already donated over 9,000 glasses to local people in need. Headquartered in NayPyiTaw as GoodVisionGlasses Ltd., the OneDollarGlasses are distributed in the office, as well as in outreach visits to the countryside of Myanmar.

INVU was founded in 2013 based on the principle that the highest quality eyewear should be affordable for everyone. Fancy brand names demand huge royalties to finance their even fancier advertising campaigns.
INVU uses a different business model with its high quality INVU sunglass brand. We focus on investing in the best material and lens technologies to ensure that our customers can enjoy the latest technological advances at a fair price.
INVU’s international team of designers, engineers and marketing experts guarantee that our glasses fit our Swiss quality standards and deliver exceptional performance.
To take it up a notch, we are manufacturing our new INVU “Frame It Your Way” customized sunglasses in a state-of-the-art Swiss optical laboratory, using cutting edge materials and the latest ultra polarized lens technology.
In short, no compromises – just the best sunglasses - at a price that you will love.
