Oak­ley and Per­sol, wants to make a dif­fer­ence. Its OneSight project brings vi­sion care to com­mu­ni­ties that can’t af­ford it by set­ting up per­ma­nent clin­ics where vis­i­tors can get same-day help. OneSight was es­tab­lished in 1988 and has since helped more than nine mil­lion peo­ple world­wide with screen­ings and vi­sion clin­ics, with the aim of reach­ing 20 mil­lion in the next ve years. Ded­i­cated com­mu­nity and school-based vi­sion cen­tres per­form free eye ex­ams and pro­vide free eye care to those in need. Peo­ple re­ceive brand-new glasses made to their pre­scrip­tion to en­sure their vi­sion is pro­tected and not compromised. @OneSightOrg @onesight As­sist­ing OneSight is as easy as ask­ing your lo­cal op­tometrist to join the voucher scheme to re­fer peo­ple in need of an eye-care clinic. You can also do­nate your old glasses at op­tometrists that have part­nered with OneSight – the parts are re­cy­cled and used to make new glasses.
