Essilor Gold sponsors 2nd World Congress of Optometry

Essilor participated in the second World Congress of Optometry (WCO) held in Hyderabad, India from 11 to 13 September 2017 as one of the event’s Gold Sponsors.
In line with the company’s mission, “to improve life by improving eyesight,” the congress, attended by 1200 professionals, focussed on matters such as “Accessibility, quality vision and eye health.”
The main focus was the WHO’s “Universal Eye Health,” a global action plan for the 2014-2019 period, which aims to reduce uncorrected refractive errors by 25%, by 2019. Conferences and seminars were given by experts from across the world and combined research with clinical practice.
The Congress also aimed to define a programme for accessible eye treatment.
