Answering a Need

Around the world, in developing and industrialized countries alike, millions of people suffer from poor vision because they lack access to or simply cannot afford eye care. Poor vision impedes a child's ability to learn in school and robs an adult of independence, mobility and quality of life. Give the Gift of Sight is founded on the belief that clear vision is a basic right, not a luxury. We are committed to delivering clear vision to those in need.

How Can You Help?
It's easy to help the world see. Just drop off your old prescription glasses or even non-prescription sunglasses at a Pearle Vision, LensCrafters or Sears Optical store near you. We'll make them good as new and hand-deliver them to those in need around the world. You can also help by donating to Give the Gift of Sight Foundation. Because Luxottica Retail covers most Gift of Sight overhead, 93 cents of every dollar is spent directly on program activities. Click here to donate now.
