It’s called LensFerry S Gives Sight.
(Press Release) PLEASANTON, CA — In support of its ongoing commitment to helping provide basic eye care to underserved populations around the world, EyeCare Prime has partnered with Optometry Giving Sight to introduce its own philanthropic initiative, LensFerry S Gives Sight.
LensFerry S Gives Sight operates on a 1:1 donation model to support Optometry Giving Sight in its mission. For each LensFerry S subscription, EyeCare Prime makes a donation to fund projects that provide access to vision care for people in need. To date, 5 million people around the world have benefited thanks to projects funded by Optometry Giving Sight.
In December, the LensFerry team had the opportunity to witness firsthand the impact that school eye health programs can have in underserved communities. In what will now become an annual commitment, the team spent five days in Oaxaca, Mexico, helping to provide eye exams and glasses to more than 1,500 students between the ages of 5 and 14 as part of the Our Children’s Vision campaign.
“More than 600 million people around the world are blind or vision impaired simply because they do not have access to the eye examination and glasses they need,” said Mark Lindsey, global general manager, EyeCare Prime. “Eighty percent of these people can be treated or cured if only they were provided basic eye care services. Giving the gift of vision is what drives us every day. Practices that offer LensFerry S to their patients are not only taking steps to increase their annual supply sales, but are also contributing to bringing eye care to those who need it most.”
LensFerry S is a doctor-friendly contact lens subscription service that enables patients to pay monthly for their lenses — from any major manufacturer, in any modality — and receive automatic deliveries of their lenses directly to their homes. The practice that prescribes the contact lenses and enrolls the patient in the service receives the sales revenue as if the lenses had been paid for in-office.
EyeCare Prime is a subsidiary of CooperVision Inc., a longtime partner of Optometry Giving Sight. Over the years, CooperVision’s cumulative support for Optometry Giving Sight has exceeded $2 million.
