Marvel Optics a Houston based online eyeglasses retailer recently announced that they have partnered with New Eyes for the Needy, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides eyeglasses to those in need.

SUGAR LAND, Texas, July 7, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In order to fully meet the soaring demand from North Carolina for eyeglass vouchers, New Eyes partnered with Marvel Optics to service NC residents. This partnership is beneficial for NC residents as it provides a faster turn-around compared to traditional brick and mortar stores. The partnership provides great quality, larger selection, and speedy delivery.

The program is currently open to North Carolina residents, but the Marvel Optics-New Eyes partnership plans on expanding to all other states in the U.S. in the near future.

"New Eyes is delighted to partner with Marvel Optics to help people in financial need get the simple yet critical tool of eyeglasses so that they can build productive and successful lives," said Jean Gajano, New Eyes' Executive Director. "The price point we have established with Marvel Optics enables us to stretch our budget and assist many more children and adults in need across the U.S."

New Eyes has been providing vision assistance to those in need since 1932. Over this time period, they have been able to provide improved vision to over eight million people in the United States and throughout the world. New Eyes has been able to accomplish this by purchasing new prescription eyeglasses for underprivileged U.S. residents and distributing used glasses to the disadvantaged in developing countries around the world. More information about New Eyes can be found on its website at new-eyes.org

New Eyes reports that 11 million people in the United States struggle with vision issues and do not have the resources they need to buy eyeglasses. Vision problems can seriously affect a person's everyday life and can impede the ability for adults to find or maintain employment, for children to succeed at school and for seniors to live independently and safely.

New Eyes for the Needy has led the community and global initiative to correct the vision for those in need across the world. It has received widely publicized recognition for their efforts through its spokesman, actor Jake Gyllenhaal, and their recent second annual fundraising concert at the Hard Rock Café in Times Square with guest performer Lisa Loeb. New Eyes is endorsed by, the National Society for the Prevention of Blindness, The American Academy of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology and the Optician Association of America.

This is an exciting partnership and the Marvel team is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such a great organization and to help those in need.
"This partnership enables us to fulfill our goal to provide affordable vision to everyone. It brings great satisfaction to all of our team members knowing that our work makes a meaningful impact in someone's life. People are able to use our glasses as a tool for success. When people call us and tell us stories of how we have made a difference for them, it's an amazing feeling that energizes us." Said Parvez Panjwani Chief Executive officer of Marvel Optics.
