Saugata Banerjee on addressing access to eye care in rural India - Essilor See Change

Over the years, our flagship inclusive business program, Eye Mitra, has grown to become the world’s largest rural optical network. Active in 14 Indian states, these entrepreneurs have provided millions of people with their first pair of eyeglasses. In this video podcast hosted by the India Vision Institute, Vice President of Inclusive Business and Philanthropy, Asia Pacific, Saugata Banerjee, explains why Essilor launched the Eye Mitra program, how we’ve adapted and improved the program through telerefraction pilots and emphasizes the need to continually work with our partners to meet our ambition of eliminating poor vision by 2050.
