Essilor: 30 million euros for Vision For Life

Vision For Life is an Essilor pioneering initiative to which the Group has allocated 30 million euros. This makes it the biggest global strategic program for raising funds aimed at reducing refraction errors or improperly corrected refraction.

It is estimated that 2.5 billion people do not have adequate eyesight correction which brings with it social and financial repercussions estimated at a yearly loss of 272 billion dollars in global productivity.

Vision For Life will support various public interest eye care projects carried out in collaboration with non-profit organizations (including local Essilor foundations), to create eyesight centers and develop skills in areas where people do not have access to primary care.
