Together we can inspire global action.
563 million people worldwide suffer from poor vision and lack access to care. The way we see it, we can fix this. All it takes is an eye exam and a pair of glasses.
It’s easy to take for granted that much of our access to the world is through two fragile eyes. Visit thewaywesee.it to experience a typical day through the eyes of a young, nearsighted girl.

The way we see it, together we can solve the global vision crisis in our lifetime.

For more than 75%, an eye exam and a pair of glasses would make their world clear and improve the quality of their lives.
The. Solution. Exists. And the results are lasting.

Oakley has partnered with OneSight, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, to provide access to quality eye care and eyewear to more than 240,000 people each year in underserved communities worldwide.
Additionally, Oakley employees have teamed up with licensed doctors to provide free eyewear and eye care to people in need through optical clinics. They are serving in locations such as Thailand, Chile, Mexico, South Africa and throughout North America. Oakley provides pre-training opportunities and pays the salaries of participating employees during their one to two week mission to restore vision.
