Meet Draditza, a 34-year-old mother to three young children from Guatemala’s rural highlands. Draditza is a homemaker, and she supports her family by selling cosmetic products.

Draditza has struggled with her eyesight for many years but could not afford to get her eyes checked. Draditza recently visited a free clinic, where she was diagnosed with myopia, or nearsightedness. This means Draditza has difficulty seeing faraway objects.
