Refractive error (RE) is a very common eye disorder among school children, resulting in impaired vision in 2.6 billion people globally. Among them, 312 million were under 19 years of age. Programs have been rolled out in low-income settings, providing spectacles to school children with uncorrected refractive error(URE). However, for a program to meet the needs, spectacles dispensed need to be affordable, accessible, feasible, and visually functionally improvable.
