Our eyes are vital to learning and our individual progress. In fact, 80% of what we learn is processed by through our eyes. Yet uncorrected poor vision affects 1 in 3 people around the world. 90% of these people live in developing communities where there is limited access to vision care and awareness of vision issues.

That’s why our work to eliminate uncorrected poor vision focuses on partnering with governments, NGOs and like-minded private organizations to create sustainable access to vision care, provide free eye exams and glasses for those most in need, fund local vision care programs and raise awareness of poor vision among policy makers and at a community level.

Since 2013, along with the OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation and our partners, we have created permanent access to vision care for over 762 million people, equipping more than 71.8 million people in underserved regions with eyeglasses and creating rural livelihoods in vision care through more than 27,700 rural optical points.

Imagine a planet where poor eyesight doesn’t hold anyone back – we are working on making that a place everybody can see for themselves.
