Operation Blessing International is working to help restore the vision to some of the victims of Japan's earthquake and tsunami disaster.
The Virginia Beach, Va. charity aid organization has partnered with a team of optometrists and lens technicians to set up three free eye clinics. They are providing free eyeglasses to those who lost their glasses.
Operation Blessing has purchased 1,400 pairs of prescription and reading glasses to distribute to survivors in need.
David Darg, Operation Blessing's disaster relief director, says things like food and fuel are important, but the victims also have a need for everyday items, like eyeglasses.
The aid organization has delivered more than four tons of emergency relief supplies to the disaster area along Japan's northeast coast.
