EVF's Response to COVID-19
Taking action to resource those affected


Our focus remains on the mission that unites us every day: to provide better lives through better sight for people in need. These unprecedented times require us to respond in an unprecedented way.

  • EVF has partnered with Essilor of America to donate over 110,000 pieces of protective equipment to hospitals, first responders, schools of optometry, and eye doctors who are providing urgent care eye care. We are honored to show our support for communities and eye doctors who are vital to helping us fulfill our mission.
  • The health, safety, and well-being of our team members and partners are paramount. All team members are working remotely per Dallas County shelter in place order given on 3/23/2020 and will maintain this policy until further notice.
  • We are working with our local school and community partners as well as our nationwide non-profit partners to assess needs and impact and to ensure our programs and team are available as needed. Since the majority of schools are closed, we are following guidance and have canceled all direct-service operations for the time being. Our team continues to work with school nurses and administrators to coordinate the delivery of glasses when possible.
  • Essilor Vision Foundation shipments of no-cost lenses and glasses to eye doctors and non-profits have ceased at this time to ensure we do our part to help flatten the curve.

We are thankful for our community of supporters, donors, partners, eye doctors, schools, teachers and parents around the country who are selflessly and tirelessly leading the way for our nation to get through this crisis together.

Essilor Vision Foundation remains committed to doing its part and ensuring proper vision care is available for all people in need.
