Services, grants, events and more.


We work with multiple charities that address the lack of vision resources in low-income communities. Partnerships with Helen Keller, Lions Club, Special Olympics, and many other organizations have been a key component in helping distribute vision resources so that children in the U.S. can see clearly.

How We Work Together

Essilor Vision Foundation supports vision charities that want to give back to their communities in two significant ways:
Lenses and Labs Services
Essilor Vision Foundation supports optometrists and vision charities that are focused on serving underprivileged youth across the U.S. We support these efforts with in-kind donations of lenses and lab services at no cost to the eye doctor.
Community Grants
We are a proud sponsor of the Optometry Cares – AOA Foundation’s Healthy Eyes Healthy Children Community Grants program. The program offers up to a $5,000 grant to optometrists who focus on spreading awareness and increasing vision services with their communities.

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.

Help A Child See Today

Together, we can help every child see the world clearly.
