A STRONG MISSION DRIVING EVERYTHING WE DO
IMPROVING LIVES BY IMPROVING SIGHT
Seeing well is crucial to us being able to learn, work, and interact with the world and people around us. One-third of the global population lives with uncorrected poor vision and its consequences. Faced with a largely unrecognized global vision crisis, Essilor is working with partners to launch and scale up several inclusive business and nonprofit initiatives so that in the future everyone can see well and live well. That is why Essilor teams are driven by our mission of improving lives by improving sight. Looking ahead, our ambition is to eradicate poor vision in one generation.

We promote health by providing Canadians with information regarding the causes, treatment and consequences of poor vision. We help advance education by providing scholarships, bursaries, awards and other forms of financial assistance to students attending post-secondary schools or institutions in an academic program related to vision.
We support the Vision Impact Institute® and its mission of raising awareness about the importance of healthy vision. The Vision Impact Institute strives to give vision a voice by mobilizing a worldwide movement on visual impairment advocacy.
