Give the gift of sight

Buy a pair of prescription spectacles during July and you can donate a pair to someone in need.

Mellins i.Style and ZEISS launched the first Buy A Pair, Give a Pair programme in the winter of 2012. The heart of the promotion, held annually in July, is to make it possible for low-income men, women and children to get a thorough visual examination and, if needed, a pair of spectacles.

Being able to see is changes everything: It increases productivity, allows us to connect properly with our surroundings, keeps us safe and helps us to maintain the sharpness of our minds.

With this tenth Buy a Pair, Give a Pair promotion, we hope to continue to make a positive change to the lives of those who need it most.

Visit any Mellins practice in South Africa from 1 – 31 July, buy a pair of glasses for yourself and help someone else to see better too. Read on to find out how to qualify and for the terms & conditions of this offer:
