1 in 7 people around the world has no way to get a pair of glasses. LensCrafters believes everyone should be able to see their best and that’s why we have been a proud supporter of OneSight’s work to ensure access to vision care for more than 30 years. You make it possible.
ASSOCIATES & DOCTORS
Since 1988, OneSight has helped more than 10 million people get the glasses they need to see clearly. And LensCrafters has been there every step of the way.
1.1 billion or 1 in 7 people around the world has no way to get an eye exam or pair of glasses— we call that the Vision Care Gap. That means living in a world that is permanently out of focus.
Quite simply, when people see better they live better. Students can learn up to twice as much in school. Adults can earn up to 20% more and be 35% more productive. All thanks to a humble pair of glasses.
Permanent vision centers that provide ongoing vision care access. Currently more than 32 million people are able to get an eye exam and a pair of glasses if needed. And that’s just the beginning.
When sustainable centers are not an option, OneSight and it’s volunteer partners (including Luxottica) hold 1-2 week vision clinics offering free eye exams and glasses made to order right on site.
