GIVE THE GIFT OF SIGHT, A LUXOTTICA GROUP FOUNDATION
Since 1988, initially through LensCrafters, Luxottica Group has been a frontline social leader through our family of three vision care charities focused on restoring and preserving clear vision. Through our Give the Gift of Sight and Community I-Care programs, Luxottica provides free eye care and eyewear for the needy all over the world. The Group also works to preserve vision through the Pearle Vision Foundation by funding research and education to find cures for preventable eye diseases.
This family of social programs engages the hands, hearts and minds of all Luxottica people across the globe. Their efforts transcend brands, titles and continents, making everyone part of something bigger by offering a chance to give back to the world. Through commitment comes the realization that Luxottica doesnt just sell eyewear - it helps the world see more clearly.
