The Foundation partners with Community of Sant'Egidio to make an impact in Italy
On 20 February 2023, the OneSightEssilorLuxottica Foundation kicked off its annual “Giornate della Vista” (Days of Sight) initiative in Rome, Italy. The initiative will run in collaboration with the Community of Sant’Egido and is supported by the Chamber of Deputies, Ministry of Laborand Social Policies, the Lazio region and the Municipality of Rome.
The initiative will continue in 10 cities in the next 10 months, providing approximately 8,000 people in need with immediate access to free eye care and glasses.
Dr. Schiano Lomoriello from the Bietti Foundation will lead the team of ophthalmologists and orthoptists at the clinics. He will be supported by opticians from our retail brands GrandVision and Salmoiraghi & Viganò. Volunteers from EssilorLuxottica will also facilitate eye screenings and the glasses selection process for beneficiaries.
