OneSight is an independent nonprofit providing access to quality vision care and eyewear in underserved communities worldwide. Our passionate volunteers, sponsors, and partners make our work possible.
Every day OneSight volunteers work in retail stores, optical offices, design studios, offices and corporate headquarters. As Luxottica associates, they make up the world’s foremost eyecare and eyewear companies. But every now and then, they put that work aside and leverage their expertise to help OneSight initiatives succeed. Many times something unexpected happens along the way: these capable professionals see eye-to-eye with humanity, fall in love with new cultures, discover common ground, and realize they are capable of bringing the world into focus.
Creating a viable solution to the need for vision care is possible because of sponsors who cover the cost of our daily operations, infrastructure, and supplies. For over 25 years, Luxottica, the world’s leading optical company, has generously supported OneSight. With their support and global reach, OneSight is able to quickly reach thousands of patients each year. And because of their generosity, more donations go directly to providing vision care for those in need.Meet Our Corporate Sponsors
Working in new cultures requires local expertise and guidance. We’re fortunate to have partners on the ground in each community where we work. These organizations pave the way for clear vision by making sure everything the volunteer team needs is set when they hit the ground.Meet Our Program Partners
From New York City to Rwanda, people are working to bring access to those in need.
