Our Work

Uncorrected poor vision is the world’s largest unaddressed disability. 1 in 3 people can’t see the world clearly with 90% living in developing countries, yet its impact on society is largely unrecognised. According to the World Health Organisation, 80% of visual impairment can be prevented or cured. In China, 40m children suffer from uncorrected poor vision. This impacts their ability to learn at school and their future life opportunities.

Essilor Vision Foundation China is committed to bring eye care solutions to children who can't see clearly through awareness campaigns and school health programmes.

Today, our projects have reached 27 provinces in China, screened over 2,5800,000 students and helped up to 230,000 to see better.
