How many times have you heard “glasses should be free, I didn’t ask to be blind.” And yet those are actual words. I wear glasses in my daily life because I have myopia.
The thing is over 4 billion adults in the world wear glasses (the Vision Council of America’s delivered the statics). You don’t have to be good at maths to know that’s it more than half of the population.
Now that you know this, it’s evident that some people don’t have any financial problems to pay their glasses or lenses without waiting for help. But we don’t see the people who are struggling to pay for their graduated eyeglasses. In consequence of this, people eyes get worst, causing significant problems for them, but also to their communities.
We should stop playing with visions of people and offer free glasses for those who need it. It’s a universal problem.
I understand that there’s a lot of people who work in the sector of sight and they gain their life with it. But, we don’t have to deprive the right to have a magnificent view because everyone deserves that at least.
What we can do as a minimum, is to create aid for those who cannot afford it. Each country should create a support fund for this problem. The aim would be for the service to be free or low-cost so that everyone could access it.
We are turning every health problem in marketing where we explode it by making money off it, so we take benefits of real issues.
A few months ago, Burger King used depression, making it a topic that doesn’t matter, and that’s just an example among all the others.
As people who are part of a nation, we must take this problem seriously and provide solutions.
Companies have to stop seeing everything as a source of money, especially health care problems. We must take action on this if we want a better future.
