(Calgary, AB): Optometry Giving Sight (OGS) invites all members of the Optometric profession and industry to join them in support of Our Children’s Vision, a global campaign helping to ensure that every child, everywhere, has access to the eye care they need.
There are millions of children around the world and in Canada who are needlessly vision impaired. The rate of myopia is increasing rapidly and could affect 5 billion people by the year 2050.
Since launching in April 2016, Our Children’s Vision has reached 10 million children. This includes four million children in Mexico who were given an eye exam as part of the Ver Bien “See Well to Learn Better” program which is part funded by Optometry Giving Sight.
Optometrists who would like to JOIN OGS in their efforts to help more children can do so by:
- making a small donation for every pair of glasses or frames sold over the next two months
- inviting your patients to make a $5 donation
Industry members are invited to support the campaign by:
- making a company donation or contacting Optometry Giving Sight to discuss CRM and project funding opportunities
- inviting your staff to make a $5 donation
