Optometry Giving Sight Welcomes Hoya Vision Care Canada as a National Partner

Optometry Giving Sight (OGS) announces that Hoya Vision Care has become a National Partner in Canada. Hoya has held several successful past fundraising events for OGS’s fall World Sight Day Challenge campaign and are now increasing their commitment to year-round support.

“I am delighted that Hoya Vision Care Canada is stepping up their support to further help people in underserved communities gain access to the eye health and vision care services they need,” said Anne Marie Hand, OGS’s Executive Director of North America.

“We are proud to partner with Optometry Giving Sight to be a part of the initiatives that help underserved communities,” said Bernard Lecavalier, Interim President of Hoya Vision Care Canada. “It is not by choice that people require vision correction, and if we can help to administer programs and initiatives through our support, then we are headed in the right direction.”

OGS funds the development of accessible and sustainable eye and vision care projects in communities where either they do not exist, or they are in need of support. OGS has supported projects around the globe in over 40 countries since the mid-2000s.

A Shady Past: The History of Sunglasses

The earliest known sunglasses were crafted by the Inuit people by carving a slit into a piece of bone and fastening it tightly in front of their eyes using leather strapping. Soot and gunpowder were often rubbed onto the bone to further reduce reflections. This creation both shielded their eyes from the bright sun and the snow’s reflected light and sharpened their vision as they scanned the horizon during hunting.
