2.5 NVG TEAM VISITS OCHRI

Essilor- World leader in lens technology has initiated a social revolution through their CSR activity aptly entitled “2.5 New Vision generation”. Impaired vision is the most common disability in the world, yet its impact on society is largely unrecognized. One-third of the global population is prevented from accessing vision care because of where they live, what they believe or what they can afford. Many do not even realize they are disadvantaged. Total 4.5 billion people need corrections but 2.5 billion do not have desired corrections. They are affected by: Geographic Location, Ideological Isolation & Economic Isolation. Following their mission of Good vision is right of all; they are reaching to rural interiors through their mobile clinics and providing feasible assistance to needy.
