Essilor Vision Foundation and Vision For Life create access to eye care services in poor communities across the world. With a global mission to raise awareness about the importance of vision care, they reach those most in need, providing free screening events and glasses that can change lives for the better.

What are Essilor Vision Foundation and Vision For Life?

Founded by Essilor as part of the group’s commitment to improving lives by improving sight, Essilor Vision Foundation operates in the poorest areas of Australia, New Zealand Asia and North America.

Vision for Life carries out similar work in Europe and Africa. Together, with local and global partners and thanks to the engagement of Essilor’s employee volunteers, they provide opportunities for communities in need to live a better life through better sight. This is mainly done through vision screening events and providing free glasses.
