Click the dots on the map to experience just a few of our favorite stories.
Volunteers at the Santa Ana, Ca Vision Van Clinic offered more than good vision to their last clinic patient. Ruth Agatep, LensCrafters GM/clinic coordinator, shares the story of Emanuel Oropeza, Community Day School student: "The techs were wrapping up. When they saw everyone else was gone, they invited Emanuel into the lab to create his lenses. He enjoyed the process so much! His mom was waiting outside. I had her peek into the lab. When Emanuel exited the lab, his mom clapped and cheered for him, saying, 'Hopefully you've inspired him to be a doctor'. Emanuel received more than the gift of sight; he now has a potential career goal!"
In 2013, 80 LensCrafters associates and Independent doctors volunteered with OneSight to provide quality vision care to the Cheyenne River Sioux in Eagle Butte, South Dakota. These associates saw firsthand the transformative power of filling a need for comprehensive eye exams and prescription glasses, even here in the United States.
Thanks to the OneSight Vision Center at Oyler School in Cincinnati, thousands of public school students and their families no longer have to make the hard choice between basic necessities and vision care. Since its debut in fall of 2012, the vision center has provided quality eye care to more than 30,000 students in Cincinnati. Seeing clearly gives people, especially children, more control over their own lives. This is why sustainable vision care matters.
Around the world, 733 million people suffer from vision loss. Of those, about 563 million can have their sight restored with an eye exam and a pair of glasses. It's that simple. Many of those who suffer are children, who without glasses, can't learn and thrive. That's why LensCrafters and OneSight are committed to bringing sustainable vision to those who need it most. Our recent Atlanta clinic brought together 43 LensCrafters associates and independent doctors who worked tirelessly to help kids get the vision care they've never had.
One in 4 kids have a vision problem, and since 80% of learning is visual, kids with poor eyesight struggle in school and in life. LensCrafters volunteers helped Atlanta kids see new possibilities at a very inspiring OneSight Vision Clinic. "We saw so many kids with high needs. I know with certainty that the glasses we provided will help them see new things, improve their ability to learn, and set them up for success in life," said associate Samantha Sakemiller. Nothing told the story quite like the grins on their faces. Better vision means a brighter future and a much bigger smile.
Matt's been with LensCrafters for two years, so he knows what it means to fit eyeglasses. But the impact of his first OneSight clinic blew him away, "Most of my activities with OneSight so far have been based in the store so I was really looking forward to the spending time working directly with the kids," said Matt. "I met a boy who couldnít even see the eye chart that was 5 feet away from him. I can't even imagine how his poor sight has impacted his ability to learn." Matt felt humbled and grateful that he could help kids with such critical needs, and that by the end of the week they would be able to see world around them more clearly.
Nicole Webb joined LensCrafters in part, because of its commitment to giving back to those in need. Right away, Nicole started participating in OneDay's Pay, which allows any Luxottica employee to donate one day of pay to OneSight. "I've been blessed in life and believe in giving back. I'm thrilled to work for a company that believes it too, and makes it a part of the culture." For Nicole, the chance to be hands on at a OneSight clinic allows her to get involved with vision care on a deeply personal level. She says, "It helps makes me a better associate, and a better person."
For LensCrafters associate Serena, her first OneSight clinic was an eye-opening experience in hand-holding. "My role was to guide the kids through the process of dilation and tonometer, a machine that measures the pressure in your eyes. This can be scary for kids who have never had their eyes examined before.î One 6-year- old boy named Dylan was nervous about the exam. "As soon as I saw Dylan I could tell he needed some extra TLC. I gave him a sticker book and stayed with him. As he left we gave each other a high-five and a smile."
Nearly 40 percent of people in New York City live below the poverty line, resulting in many families having to forego good vision care to purchase groceries and keep the lights on. Using the foundation created by the OneSight Vision Center at Oyler School in Cincinnati, a year-round vision care clinic will open its doors in New York City at PS 188 in Brooklyn's Coney Island in 2014, followed by another clinic in PS 18 in the Bronx. Sustainable clinics like this one are just one of the many examples of OneSight activities that are supported by donations from LensCrafters customers and associates.
An incredible need brought OneSight to The Gambia, where there was once only one optometrist to serve 1.8 million people. In 2013, OneSight changed all that when it opened its first sustainable vision center in Farafenni, The Gambia, providing the community access to comprehensive eye exams and affordable glasses. Since its debut, the sustainable vision center's staff has seen almost 3,000 patients with an average of 107 patients seen per week.
For 13 days in October 2013, a team of volunteers helped provide hope and sight to 5,000 South Africans during an OneSight Vision Clinic. In KwaZulu-Natal, there is only one optometrist per 26,000 people. During OneSight's time in South Africa, more than 5,000 South Africans were given access to quality vision care and quality eyewear.
Doctor Dana Kindberg has experienced first-hand what sight does for people. Beginning as an associate in a LensCrafters retail store, Dr. Kindberg was inspired to go to optometry school after participating in OneSight Clinics around the world. Later, while volunteering at a Vision Clinic in Thailand, Dr. Kindberg was able to fulfill her mother's last wish: using her glasses to help someone else see. She gave her glasses to Ming, a little girl who needed help seeing in school.
In China's rural regions, Stanford University's Rural Education Action Program (REAP) and OneSight are studying how access to prescription glasses can improve academic life for rural Chinese students, fewer than 5 percent of whom will attend college. Dubbed Seeing Is Learning, this collaborative program could have profound implications for China's future.
