Sight is one of our most important senses as it enables us to read, learn, work and enjoy life. So when this sense is hindered, it can mean major life challenges, making it more difficult to navigate through life. That is why we are proud to announce the launch of our Buy One, Give One program. Our aim at Coastal has always been to improve your life by improving your sight, and through our partnership with the Essilor Vision Foundation we’re able to fulfil this on a global scale.
Did you know?
Though considered a basic human right, did you know that 2.5 billion people – one third of the world’s population – do not have good vision or access to good vision services?
That’s why we here at Coastal have joined forces with the Essilor Vision Foundation to help bring improved sight to millions through our new initiative – and you can help too. For every pair of glasses bought, we will donate a pair of glasses to someone in need.
Established with the goal of eliminating poor vision and its lifelong consequences, the Essilor Vision Foundation has already provided the means for millions to have access to vision care services, by investing in charitable projects focusing on giving and training primary vision care providers in the most under-served areas of the world.
2017 alone has seen more than 1.5 million people screened and over 400,000 pairs of glasses given to people in need. But despite this great accomplishment, there’s still more to be done.
