Owndays PH shares the gift of vision through Eye Camp

Owndays conducted its fourth Eye Camp in collaboration with Lions Club International.

OWNDAYS, the leading eyewear store in Japan, conducted its 4th Eye Camp in the Philippines in collaboration with Lions Club International and gave out free prescription glasses to nearly 200 residents of Tondo, Manila. The brand manufactures a wide variety of high quality frames in more than 1,500 styles suited for any lifestyle — basic and functional to stylish and fashionable—all in one price.

“At Owndays Philippines, we want to improve vision of all Filipinos. Through this Eye Camp, we are not just distributing prescription glasses, but we are also helping them see their future brighter and clearer,” shared Vohne Yao, Owndays managing director.


During the Eye Camp, volunteer doctors conducted eye checks and eye health evaluations to check for possible eye conditions. Then, Owndays made glasses using the prescriptions obtained during the check-up, which the staff distributed and adjusted to ensure that the glasses would fit well.

Aside from the eye check-ups and eyewear distribution, Owndays also brought school supplies, bags, shoes, toys, and snacks that kids would enjoy. “We wanted to do something for the children to brighten up their lives and empower them by providing them with the tools they needed to be better at school and their communities,” Yao added.
