Improving access to vision care through inclusive business models - Essilor See Change

Launched in 2013, Essilor’s inclusive business arm 2.5 New Vision Generation (2.5 NVG) provides vision care to underserved populations where people do not have access to conventional distribution channels. Through inclusive business models such as Eye Mitra or Vision Ambassadors, 2.5 NVG is creating a sustainable ecosystem that is not only generating employment and alleviating poverty, but is also building a task-force of skilled vision care providers in underserved areas. To date, over 4,000 primary vision care providers have been trained in seven countries.
