The mission of Optometry Giving Sight is global and focused on closing the gap of vision care inequity. We join with the chorus of voices of our optical industry friends who have spoken out against racism and inequality. Optometry Giving Sight was founded on the principle of bringing eye care to underserved communities, most often facing economic inequities. We recognize the same injustices are found in underserved communities, particularly communities of color right here in the U.S. and Canada. INVISION Podcast What’s Really Up with Vision Expo in 2021?
