Offering safe vision screening in time of COVID-19 - Essilor See Change

As the world adapts to circumstances brought on by the pandemic, health and eye care continue to be essential services needed by everybody. In line with the India government’s guidelines to carry on providing healthcare services to those in need, Essilor Vision Foundation India has partnered with India Vision Institute to offer safe vision screening in time of COVID-19.

Through this partnership, 3000 people from underserved communities in Chennai – auto rickshaw drivers, fisherfolk and daily wage workers – will receive free vision screening and glasses to correct their vision, if required. The vision screenings are conducted following all COVID-19 safety protocols with optometrists wearing their personal protective kits.
