RESTORING CLEAR VISION
Over 250 million people around the world suffer from poor vision because they dont have access to, or simply cannot afford eye care. Poor vision impedes a childs ability to learn in school and robs an adult of independence, mobility and quality of life. Give the Gift of Sight (North America) and Community I-Care (Australia) harness the energy and business expertise of people working in Luxottica - employees, associates and doctors - to give clear vision to those in need.
Give the Gift of Sight, founded in 1988, and Community I-Care, founded in 2003, provide free vision care and eyewear to underprivileged individuals in North America, Australia, New Zealand and in developing countries around the world. Together, these programs, in their international missions, domestic missions and other domestic programs, have helped more than six million people on five continents.
