Organizations work together to support charitable eye doctors

In the U.S., more than 40 million people, including 12 million children, have vision problems and are not getting the vision correction they need to see clearly. GPN Technologies is dedicated to helping underserved communities by partnering with Essilor Vision Foundation (EVF).

GPN Technologies delivers data-driven technology solutions that empower eye care professionals to make informed decisions, helping them keep their businesses profitable and competitive. The company provides analytics to ophthalmic practitioners through its EDGEPro platform and industry intelligence to business groups, consultants, and manufacturers.

Since 2018, GPN Technologies has donated $75,000 to EVF, including a significant contribution of $25,000 in 2020, to help the foundation continue to support eye doctors and eye care professionals who dedicate their careers to helping people see clearly. These contributions help fund EVF programs such as See Kids Soar®, an in-office cause marketing program, and Changing Life through Lenses®, which offers free lenses, lab services and complete glasses to vision non-profits and charitable eye doctors who provide vision care to patients who are financially in need or lack insurance coverage.

GPN is committed to a strong partnership with EVF to help improve quality of life through better sight for those most in need.”

“EVF believes even more people will need help getting vision care during the ongoing pandemic,” says Becky Palm, EVF President and Executive Director. “We are grateful to GPN Technologies, whose support makes it possible for us to continue to focus on our mission and to help eye doctors around the country provide critical vision care to those most in need.”
