A Million Magic Moments and More of What You Need to Know for February

1 Million Magic Moments

The Essilor Vision Foundation has announced the donation of one million pairs of glasses to people in need around the U.S. since it began operating in 2007. To celebrate, they’ve launched the year-long “One Million Magic Moments” campaign (watch the video here: invisionmag.com/021903). There are several ways ECPs can help: the Changing Life through Lenses program, a no-cost, in-kind donation of lenses and lab services for any practicing OD; apply for an Optometry Cares Healthy Eyes Healthy Children Community Grant; and the See Kids Soar in-office donation campaign. For every $50 donated, Essilor Vision Foundation can provide both a vision exam and a pair of glasses to a child in need. evfusa.org
