Essilor Vision Foundation

Essilor Vision Foundation

Our mission is to eliminate poor vision and its lifelong consequences.

In 2008, Essilor created the Essilor Vision Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity based in Dallas, Texas. Committed to raising awareness of the importance of corrected vision and the critical role it plays in literacy, education, society, community, safety and the economy, EVF works throughout the year to provide services to those most in need. To date, EVF has impacted more than half a million people in need of vision correction across the nation through its various programs, including the Kids Vision for Life program and EVF’s strategic partnerships.

EVF also offers opportunities for employees to volunteer at local events to provide vision screenings, eye exams and prescription glasses to individuals who would not receive them otherwise. These experiences allow employees the chance to see and experience firsthand the impact a new pair of glasses can have for someone who would normally go without.

EVF helps bridge the gap between need and access to vision correction by providing services at a variety of locations at no cost to those in need.
