About five million Canadians need vision correction and do not have it today, which impacts their lives, their ability to learn and to succeed.
Essilor’s mission, in Canada and throughout the world, is to Improve lives by improving sight. It translates into everything we do, every day. Our goal is to eliminate poor vision in all its forms because we believe that everyone has the right to good vision.
We are very pleased to announce the new Eyezen Scholarship Program developed in collaboration with HumanWare and the En Vue Foundation. As of January 1, 2018, for every Eyezen lens sold in Canada, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Fondation En Vue. From this fund, the Fondation En Vue will donate up to five Prodigi Connect devices, per year, to students living with a visual impairment, to help them continue their postsecondary education.
“Eyezen lenses are designed to relax and protect the eyes of young adults even when they use digital screens for long periods of time. Today’s young people, whether they have perfect vision or a visual limitation, are hyper connected: the smart phone or laptop is never far away”, explains Jean-François Lacasse, Vice-President Marketing and business development-Essilor Canada. “That’s why we chose Eyezen lenses to propel this scholarship program.”
