In July 2022, Oakley and NFL Quarterback Lamar Jackson collaborated with the North America affiliate of OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation, to offer free vision screenings, eye exams and glasses as prescribed to nearly 150 kids and adults in Coral Springs, Florida, US.

The two-day charitable clinic was held at Coral Springs Sportsplex alongside Lamar Jackson’s 2022 FunDay with LJ event. The vision clinic was sponsored by Oakley and addressed unresolved vision needs for kids and adults in Coral Springs, Florida. Lamar Jackson visited the clinic to interact with the children in attendance.
