For 170 years Essilor has been driven by the mission of improving lives by improving sight, but today 2.7 billion people still lack vision correction. This is why we’re working to eliminate poor vision from the world by 2050. Our ambition and targets, aligned with UN sustainable goals, drive our efforts and enable us to measure our progress.
Good vision transforms more than just a person’s health and well-being, it reduces inequalities and positively impacts the daily lives of individuals, their families and their communities through their ability to learn, work and be safe. Help us share the message that vision matters. Because good vision is everyone’s basic human right.LEARN MORE
WHO WE WORK WITH
We develop partnerships with NGOs, social entrepreneurs, national governments, and the private sector to gain better understanding of local needs and barriers and create a vision care infrastructure that will be sustainable over the long-term. By pooling our knowledge, experience and resources we can achieve greater positive impact together.LEARN MORE
A message from our Chief Mission Officer
As COVID-19 affects more and more people around the world, the safety of our teams, partners and the communities we serve, remains of the greatest importance. We encourage everyone to take the necessary steps to ensure their safety and the safety of those around them. Our teams are doing their best to support front line workers by providing safety glasses and goggles and raising awareness of good practices to stop the spread.
While the world works to battle this pandemic as quickly as possible, we too as a responsible organisation remain committed to working with all stakeholders to support in the best way we can. We have already undertaken unprecedented measures, including the closure of our charitable clinics and screening events.
As many of the businesses in our network of primary vision care providers have shut down in accordance with national government guidelines, our teams are working on new ways to safely connect with them and will continue to monitor the situation closely.
Partners, please get in touch with your local teams if you need support.
We are confident the global community will come together to recover as quickly as it can and we look forward to that day.
Please take care and stay safe.
