In July 2022, in partnership with The Special Olympics Lions Clubs International Opening Eyes Program, our team in China supported a recent vision clinic in Chengdu. The event provided free eye assessments, prescription eyewear, sunglasses and sports goggles to Special Olympics athletes.
In the Opening Eyes Session, 167 athletes received eye screenings through our team in China. Six optometrists from the EssilorLuxottica Group volunteered at the Opening Eyes event.
The Opening Eyes Program was part of a larger event called the Special Olympics Healthy Athletes Screening that provided more than 300 athletes from 10 special schools in Sichuan Province with services related to health and nutrition.
