The Lapaire Group is on a quest to solve the rising crisis, with over 26.3 million people in Africa estimated to have a form of visual disability and over 550 million people in need of glasses, according to the World Health Organization.
Lapaire is a pan-African eyewear company with operations in Uganda, Kenya, the Ivory Coast, and Mali, among other countries.
The company is expanding its presence in these markets by opening optical stores to offer quality and convenient accessible eye care to everyone.
The tailor made services have captured Kenyans Hearts by ensuring that the glasses are not only appealing and affordable but also functional and fashionable.
Each frame goes through crafting stages and the resulting glasses have been heralded as some of the best in the business.
For many Kenyans buying glasses is the equivalent of going to a dentist rather than shopping or doing something they love but Lapaire wants to change that.
A great pair of corrective eyeglasses is as essential to your wardrobe as a good linen shirt and a classic pair of white sneakers.
They should be versatile, practical and guaranteed to help you gain confidence to succeed at work or school.
Kenyans can access free eye education, check ups and glasses from as low as Ksh 3,400, with the option of paying in installments.
Nearly 35,000 people have benefited from the quality eye care services and 50,000 from free eye check ups.
The glasses are assembled in Kenya with lenses manufactured by one of the world leaders in corrected lenses. All lenses benefit from free anti-reflective and anti-scratch treatments.
Lapaire’s team of professionals who are passionate about their work and driven by the desire to improve people’s lives are available at all times to listen and advise.
