Helping the world see more and be more. Together.
Laubman & Pank is proud to partner with the OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation to create sustainable access to vision care, provide free eye exams and glasses for those most in need, fund local vision care programs and raise awareness of poor vision among policy makers and at a community level. Join us for World Sight Day and find out more about our mission to eliminate uncorrected poor vision all over the world.
On average, 30% of the world is currently myopic, and by 2050, based on current trends, almost 50% will be, which is a staggering 5 billion people. The most apparent sign of myopia is that objects in the distance appear blurry. However, children might report headaches and eye fatigue caused by the eyes straining to focus. Although myopia cannot be prevented entirely, new research shows ways to slow down the progression of the condition.
THE ONESIGHT ESSILORLUXOTTICA FOUNDATION'S GOAL IS TO ELIMINATE UNCORRECTED POOR VISION IN A GENERATION
Uncorrected poor vision affects 1 in 3 people around the world. 90% of these people live in developing communities where there is limited access to vision care and awareness of vision issues.
