Leading performance eyewear brand Oakley and Rohit Sharma, globally renowned cricketer and Oakley brand ambassador in India, teamed up with OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation in its efforts to raising awareness about the importance of good vision, and providing sustainable access to vision care where it doesn’t exist today.

At the full-day event held at Gurugram, around 1000 underserved school-going children aged between 10 and 15 years, participated in the eye clinic for testing visual acuity. Children found in need for vision correction were given free Oakley Eyeglasses fitted with lenses made to their prescription.

Speaking on the initiative, Rohit Sharma, added, “I am honoured to be a part of this empowering initiative by Oakley and OneSight. The initiative is in the right direction towards helping create awareness about vision correction, especially among children. The future belongs to our children and timely access to vision care and correction plays an important role in building and securing their future. I am grateful to be doing my part in being able to make a difference in our community with Oakley and OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation.”  

“We are committed to ensuring access to vision care to all, especially more focused among children, as it profoundly impacts their overall development and future prospects. At the OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation, we strive to address the barriers that hinder vision care accessibility and raise awareness about the transformative power of good vision. We are partnering with various state governments in Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka , Jammu & Kashmir for delivering quality eye care services . By investing in the well-being of our children, we are contributing towards a brighter future for generations to come," said Mr. Narasimhan Narayanan, President, EssilorLuxottica South Asia.
