Press Releases Essilor Vision Foundation and Dentons Bring Vision Care to People In Need Law firm supports foundation’s mission. Published 3 weeks ago on July 8, 2021 By Press Releases Share Tweet (PRESS RELEASE) DALLAS, TX — A recent survey finds that more than half of parents are worried about their children’s vision and the effects of increased screen time. While approximately one in five Americans prioritizes getting regular eye exams, many face barriers to vision care. Dentons is helping families overcome these barriers by supporting Essilor Vision Foundation (EVF). Dentons is the world’s largest law firm and has been contributing to EVF since 2017. This year, their total lifetime giving reached $40,000. “EssilorLuxottica’s mission to ‘help people see more, be more and live life to its fullest’ is not just about helping people with their ophthalmic health. It is about promoting vision care equity ― providing every child, every person, the gift of accurate eyesight, so that they can see the whiteboard, read a book, and gaze at the horizon and imagine the beyond. It is about community, inclusion and our collective and fundamental humanity,” said Gadi Weinreich, Health Care law partner at Dentons. “Dentons is exceedingly proud to support Essilor Vision Foundation’s unwavering commitment to providing vision care access for all.” Kids need regular eye exams Parents have good reason to be concerned about their kids’ eye health, since twice as many kids are spending more than four hours a day online during the pandemic than before. Here are some common signs and symptoms to look for that could mean a child is having trouble seeing clearly: Sitting too close to the TV Holding a book or digital device too close Complaining of headaches or tired eyes Squinting or tilting the head to see better Rubbing eyes frequently Parents whose kids exhibit any of these behaviors should take their child to an eye doctor for an exam. However, families across the country continue to face financial uncertainty and need help covering basic expenses such as medical care. By contributing to EVF, Dentons is enabling the foundation to offer programs for charitable eye doctors who treat patients in need. One of these programs is the Changing Life through Lenses (CLTL) Relief Fund, which is designed to support the philanthropic efforts of eye doctors around the U.S. Eye doctors who enroll and provide vision services to eligible charitable patients can receive up to $1,500.
