Press Releases ClearVision Takes the 2014 World Sight Day Company Challenge Published 6 years ago on October 20, 2014 By INVISION Staff Share Tweet ClearVision Optical joins the optical community by taking the 2014 World Sight Day Company Challenge on Thursday, October 9. 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 on behalf of each customer who places an online order of 4 or more pieces on World Sight Day, to Optometry Giving Sight. The company will also 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 fifth 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. Advertisement This year, the ‘Call to Action’ for World Sight Day is ‘No more avoidable blindness.” ClearVision supports 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 helping to make the community, organization and world a better place.
