Having launched its new global organization, OneSight aims to raise public awareness and appeal among its employees and Luxottica partners, provide opportunities to help the needy and foster stronger interpersonal relations.
The Foundation will seek to leverage Luxotticas global dimensions to extend its reach, especially in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.
Program goals include 20 global clinics in 15 countries, with first-time visits to Brazil and South Africa, and 25 weeks of regional clinics across North America, Australia and China.
OneSight will grant US$ 200,000 to support research projects related to diabetic retinopathy and pediatric vision disorders and award ten optometry degree scholarships.
