One Pair For All

Bringing a bit of change in the ecological systems by reduce, reuse and recycle of the ocean bound plastics and metal driven Eyewear industry. Creating a place where vision is no longer a barrier to see this beautiful world through one pair. Onepair charity was created with a vision to help people with eye care, whether it is to find a pair of eye glasses, to find doctor for eye exam/surgery. Onepair charity a independent nonprofit with the solutions, people and resources to eradicate the vision care crisis for good. We believe that when the people see better, it is always better. Together with donors, volunteers, partners and sponsors, we bring eye exams, glasses and permanent vision centers to the individuals and places that need eye care the most. It all started with an idea of a middle school kid to give away couple pairs of glasses to local kids in Arizona, USA and to kids in Bangalore,India who couldn’t afford them.

Who we are


My name is Samik, I am in high school right now. With the support of family and friends I founded Onepaircharity. I started with an idea to give away a couple pairs of glasses to local kids in Arizona, USA and to kids in Bangalore, India who could not afford them. I also feel there is a need for helping people who have eye conditions such as Glaucoma, Cataracts, Bulging Eyes, Color Blindness, Crossed Eye, and Diabetic Macular Edema. I thought about this charity because I see many people that are older and younger, that have these eye conditions, and many cannot afford eyewear/eye exams. Please help me in collecting eyewear and donating. Or if you can organize eye exams and related services to people in need in your own community. If you are an Eye doctor, you can be much more compassionate in organizing some events for free in and around where you live. If you have a loved one that is need of any of these services or has been through a tough time, you can see events that may be of interest to you on our website from time to time. Although we are based in the USA., we have a global reach with affiliates and friends in India and the continental USA and are always looking to do more with anyone that can and is willing to contribute. Please get in touch with us through the Contact Us page.

Keratoconus eye surgery successful at VIIO Bangalore under the helping hands and support of Onepaircharity!

Ms.Vandana ( name changed for Privacy) was referred to Vittala international institute of ophthalmology from vision centre in bangalore. The child was diagnosed with Keratoconus in both eyes.
Keratoconus is a degenerative disorder of the eye in which structural changes within the cornea cause it to thin and change to a more conical shape than the more normal gradual curve. Corneal Collagen Cross linking (C3R surgery) is currently the only treatment to stop progression of keratoconus and to avoid corneal transplant. It works by increasing collagen crosslinks which are the natural “anchors” within the cornea. These anchors are responsible for preventing the cornea from bulging out and becoming steep and irregular. With crosslinking, the outer layer of the cornea (called the epithelium) is left intact, riboflavin, a type of B vitamin, is injected into the cornea, which then is activated with UV light. The child was advised to undergo BOTH EYES C3R SURGERY right eye followed by left eye.
The patient went through surgery on both her eyes and the surgery lasted for 1hr per eye and was uneventful. Thanks to the operating team of Dr.Vandana Sayra – Operating surgeon, Mr.Anil Kumar - Surgery Assistant, and OT Assistants- Mr.Muthuraj and Mr.Samuel Dennis of Vittal International Institute for making this happen. Motto of VIIO ( "No one shall go blind for want of money or lack of care"), we at Onepaircharity stand by this!!
Ms.Vandana ( name changed for Privacy) who underwent keratoconus surgery at Vittal under the helping hands of Onepaircharity and Samik Krishnan's support.
We at Onepaircharity are happy this surgery was a success.

New Eyes for the Needy

Thank you for your donation.


Dear Samik,

New Eyes for the Needy would like to thank you for your donation of 23 pairs of glasses.
We appreciate your support of our programs to improve the vision of poor children and adults in the United States and around the world. For over 80 years, New Eyes has been committed to giving clear sight to those most in need by providing a basic pair of eyeglasses.
Please know that your efforts will make a difference in poor people’s lives. Our volunteers will sort and categorize the contacts and used glasses to be shipped overseas to impoverished people living in countries such as Haiti, Ghana, India, Indonesia, and Senegal. These glasses are often the first and only pair of glasses these recipients will ever own! Your donation will improve the lives of the needy – children can succeed in school, adults can find or maintain employment and the elderly can remain independent.
Again, New Eyes thanks you for helping us to help others and we look forward to your continued support!
Best regards,
New Eyes for the Needy
NJ 07078
