Through the Adopt a School initiative, Essilor will be ensuring that each and every child at adopted schools will receive an eye test and if needed, a pair of glasses to correct their vision.


 

For millions of children in the developing world, a pair of glasses could change everything. 80% of what a child learns is processed through the visual system yet children worldwide struggle to learn at school simply because they do not have access to the vision correction they need to study. We know that we cannot remove all the barriers a child may face in getting a good education at school, however we can ensure to remove at least one major barrier, uncorrected vision.

Essilor has partnered with Vision Aid Overseas as part of the Our Children’s Vision Campaign to bring much needed eye care and glasses into the classroom so that every child in supported areas can get the eye care they need to see clearly.

Through the Adopt a School initiative, Essilor will be ensuring that each and every child at adopted schools will receive an eye test and if needed, a pair of glasses to correct their vision.

 

How much does it cost to adopt a school?

A donation of £5,000 can adopt one school enabling us to provide eye tests and glasses to a maximum of 1,000 students. Students identified as needing further treatment will be referred to a nearby hospital for treatment.

We need to help every child, everywhere get access to the eye care and the glasses they need to change the course of their future for the better. Please help us.
