    For every pair of Mantras you buy, we help correct a student's vision in rural Yunnan, China

  • Buy One, Give One

    When you buy a pair of Mantra sunglasses, we will donate a pair to a child in need.

  • The Story

    While teaching in a small village in the Yunnan province, we discovered that many students lacked access to prescription eyeglasses and that their success in school was greatly hindered by their poor vision. In response, we started Education in Sight, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing eye care for students with vision problems. To date, EIS has already administered over 115,000 eye exams and donated over 16,000 pairs of glasses to students in need.

    Buy 1, Give 1

    Mantra was founded in order to further our progress in solving the urgent issue of poor vision for rural students. Our "Buy One, Give One" concept is simple: for every pair of sunglasses we sell, we donate a pair of prescription glasses to a student in need in rural Yunnan.

    Find Your Mantra

    At an affordable cost, Mantra sunglasses help protect your vision and save someone else's. Our in-house designs and American-sourced materials enable us to create one-of-a-kind, high-quality sunglasses, which let you look good while also doing good.


    Look Good, Do Good. Find your Mantra today.
