Soar with us!
To us, a paper airplane is more than just a piece of paper. It symbolizes a child’s ability to soar in life once they receive a new pair of glasses.

The Invisible Problem
Vision issues not only impact the success of children in school; they also affect their ability to function in life. Unlike hunger or tooth decay, vision is an invisible problem—children are often unable to self-identify that their vision is impaired. Children rely on their parents, teachers, and community to be advocates for their vision care. To them, blurred vision is normal.
The Barriers to Care
How We Do It
By partnering with schools, eyecare professionals, nonprofit charities, and community leaders, Essilor Vision Foundation is able to provide vision exams and glasses to children in need.
We Need You
Essilor Vision Foundation believes that we cannot solve the vision crisis alone—it takes a community to help the millions of children in the U.S. who need vision correction services.
