(Press Release) Eyewear industry leader ClearVision Optical joins the optical community by taking the 2015 World Sight Day Company Challenge on October 8. This annual global movement is part of a larger overall effort to help eliminate avoidable blindness.
As part of the challenge, ClearVision is donating 5 percent for each ClearVision brand frame sold on October 8. Donations will be made on behalf of those customers placing ClearVision brand collection orders, in support of Optometry Giving Sight for the World Sight Day Challenge.
The company is also donating $5 on behalf of each customer who shares on the ClearVision Facebook page, facebook.com/clearvisionoptical, on World Sight Day, what they do to give back to the optical community.
In addition, ClearVision will raise funds in support of World Sight Day through an employee sunglass sale. Employees are also encouraged to donate unused frames that can be repurposed to “give sight” to those who otherwise would not be able to see without glasses.
“We feel compelled to give the gift of vision, and hope that we can help transform the lives of children and adults who otherwise might never see clearly at all,” says Jennifer Trakhtenberg, ClearVision’s Senior Talent Leader. “We’re happily beginning our sixth year of involvement in the World Sight Day Company Challenge, as part of our ongoing commitment to give back and make a difference to those who need support.”
An estimated 670 million people in the world are blind or visually impaired simply because they don’t have access to an eye exam and glasses. Each year, World Sight Day raises global awareness of this important issue.
ClearVision is proud to support numerous charitable causes, and has been honored by many organizations including Big Brothers and Sisters of Suffolk County, Long Island Cares, and Optometry Giving Sight for making the community, organization and world a better place.
