The Essilor Vision Foundation Australia, reaches out to the “forgotten people” – indigenous citizens, refugees/migrants and people with mental illness and provides them with free vision screening and, if required, complimentary prescription spectacles.
On a much larger scale the Foundation undertakes en masse vision-screening for school children around Australia and similarly provides them with complimentary, prescription spectacles when needed.
The Foundation is indebted to a generous and caring group of volunteer optometrists, optometry students, orthoptists, dispensers, low vision professionals and Essilor Australia staff for their kind assistance.
It is funded from tax deductible donations received from generous corporations and individuals. If you would like to make a donation, please head over to our donation page.
