Oakley announces commitment to addressing the world vision crisis.
1.5 billion people live in poverty
894 million people don’t have clean drinking water
868 million people go hungry
And, did you know…
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.
With corrected vision, an individual’s independence is restored. Their educational goals become attainable and economic potential reachable.
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.
Check back often for progress and updates as we design solutions, disrupt the issue and inspire you to join the fight.
