Celebrity Specs® is a fundraising and awareness project featuring eyeglasses and sunglasses along with autographed photos, donated by famous personalities. The Celebrity Specs® exhibit has been on display at the Shops at 2000 Penn and Westfield Wheaton, among other venues in the Metropolitan Washington area. In 2017, the exhibit found a permanent home at our headquarters, located at 233 Massachusetts Avenue, NE, Washington, DC. Many of the donated glasses are auctioned off at POB's annual Night of Vision gala, in support of our sight-saving programs.
