A simple pair of glasses can make a world of difference to a child who cannot see.

Schools

Children rely on their parents, teachers, and community to be advocates for their vision care. It is estimated that nearly a quarter of parents do not pursue full vision exams for their children due to lack of financial resources.

Champions for Sight

Essilor Vision Foundation is investing in the community, schools and parents so each person can be an advocate for children’s vision health. Through partnerships with schools and non-profits, more children receive access to vision care. By providing resources to teachers and parents, each one can better advocate for their students and children, making them a champion for good sight.

What We Do

We provide direct vision services to kids in school through our Kids Vision for Life program, using mobile clinics to visit local schools and provide no-cost eye exams and glasses to students.

Essilor Vision Foundation selects schools based on demonstrated need, using criteria such as high student poverty levels as indicated by student eligibility for free and reduced-price meal subsidies. By serving kids directly in schools, we overcome the barriers to access to care.


Our Impact

We work with eye doctors to provide vision exams and glasses to school children who could not otherwise afford vision care. The good news is that 80% of all vision impairments can be prevented or cured. A simple pair of glasses can make a world of difference to a child who cannot see. Due to our industry relationship with Essilor of America, who donates the lenses and lab service, and our generous partners who donate frames, Essilor Vision Foundation is able to provide no-cost glasses to children in need.

A child not receiving annual screenings can lead to a child’s vision issues going undiagnosed and uncorrected, which ultimately affects the child’s ability to learn and succeed in life. Imagine a child missing a year of school and the impact it would have on their productivity.

To help you raise awareness within your school, staff and parents, we created free resources. These will help you increase awareness of the need and that there are solutions.
