Essilor Canada Introduces the Eyezen Scholarship Program
Essilor announces the new Eyezen Scholarship Program developed in collaboration with HumanWare and the En Vue Foundation. As of January 1, 2018, for every Eyezen lens sold in Canada, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Fondation En Vue. From this fund, the Fondation En Vue will donate up to five Prodigi Connect devices per year to students living with a visual impairment, to help them continue their postsecondary education.
“Eyezen lenses are designed to relax and protect the eyes of young adults even when they use digital screens for long periods of time. Today’s young people, whether they have perfect vision or a visual limitation, are hyper connected: the smart phone or laptop is never far away”, explains Jean-François Lacasse, Vice-President Marketing and business development-Essilor Canada. “That’s why we chose Eyezen lenses to propel this scholarship program.”
