OneSight is a leading organization focused on bringing both sustainable and urgent vision care solutions to communities around the world. To date, OneSight has helped sixteen million people in 46 countries see clearly. By 2020, OneSight will provide ongoing access to vision care to over 20 million people.
Each year, OneSight volunteers travel to remote parts of the globe to provide care and services to populations that lack access to eye care primarily due to high medical costs, travel and/or availability.
On the OneSight trip, OD students will work under the supervision of Luxottica Retail affiliated doctors performing comprehensive eye exams. They will also help support a core team of Luxottica volunteers in the frame fitting, manufacturing and dispensing of new eyewear. For the optometry students selected, Luxottica Retail covers all expenses associated with the clinic, including air fare, accommodations and meals.
Students traveled to Tanzania in 2017 and Oaxaca, Mexico in 2018.
