Many people with vision problems have difficulty completing daily tasks simply because they can't afford glasses. This is a reality for North Carolinians, as well as people overseas. Eye Care Associates in Burlington has an answer. The "One for One" campaign works to combat this need by donating one set of prescription glasses whenever a customer purchases a complete pair. This campaign includes a partnership with Restoring Vision, which will distribute the donated eye wear in the U.S and around the world.

RestoringVision, a non-profit founded in 2003, offers new eyewear to charitable groups that serve the vision needs of people around the world who otherwise would have no access to reading glasses or sunglasses. Many residents in developing countries make their living with their hands, completing tasks such as fishing, sewing, cooking or assembly line work. RestoringVision delivers readers which helps to increase work productivity, scholastic performance and improve overall quality of life. Sunglasses also play an important role by helping protect individuals against smoke, blowing dust and harmful ultraviolet light.
