Essilor Vision Foundation is committed to giving children a better life through better sight. As it kicks off its 12th year, the organization is continuing to raise awareness and make the difference for those children whose lives are forever changed by a pair of glasses.

“We are grateful for the support of Essilor of America employees, labs and the community. Their unwavering support and commitment help us as we work to reach the goal eliminating poor vision in one generation,” says Becky Palm, President and Executive Director of Essilor Vision Foundation.
