Optometry Giving Sight
Sustainable, lasting results.
As a platinum sponsor of Optometry Giving Sight, we are looking to support their initiatives and raise awareness of their cause, which is to ensure sustainable, lasting results in three ways:
- Eye-care service delivery – examinations and low-cost eye glasses/vision devices;
- Human resources – training of optometrists, eye-care personnel and their teachers;
- Infrastructure development – establishment and support of vision centres, eye clinics and schools of optometry.
Transforming lives around the world.
Optometry Giving Sight operates in many countries, particularly the developing world – from Malawi to Mexico; Papua New Guinea to Peru. And to date has provided basic eye-care services to over four million people. This has been achieved through the establishment of 100 vision centres and training for more than 2,600 people to become mid-level eye care personnel.
CooperVision’s One Bright Vision will support the comprehensive child (7-12 years) eye health programme in Bagamoyo District, Tanzania.
