(PRESS RELEASE) CINCINNATI, OH – In honor of World Sight Day, OneSight unveiled an eye-catching street mural in the organization’s hometown, Cincinnati. The mural calls on passersby—with a bold headline that reads: WE ARE ONE. SIGHT FOR ALL.—to learn and help raise awareness of the importance of glasses and the role clear sight plays in the social, educational and professional success of their fellow Cincinnatians.

“This mural is a special moment for OneSight as it celebrates the importance of those in our community and around the world who come together for clear sight,” stated K-T Overbey, president and executive director of OneSight. “OneSight believes that everyone deserves to see their potential and their world clearly, no matter who they are or where they live. Together, we can help build a future everyone can see.”

The mural showcases a photo collage of OneSight team members, volunteers, patients, partners and community members. OneSight has been working for over three decades to ensure that lack of access to vision care is no longer a barrier to human potential. The installation reflects OneSight’s dedication to improving quality of life and unlocking potential for the 1.1 billion people who need glasses but have no way to get them.

In addition to the mural, OneSight supporters from over eight countries will be hosting local events in honor of World Sight Day and how together, we are building a future everyone can see. Luxottica is the founding sponsor of OneSight and in celebration of the day, OneSight will partner with hundreds of Luxottica retail stores across LensCrafters, Pearle Vision and Sears Optical to provide vision care and glasses to those who otherwise could not financially afford it. Patients are preidentified through local nonprofits, such as the lions club and prevent blindness, and receive their glasses through the OneSight voucher program at participating retail stores.
