Optometry Giving Sight

Currently, more than 600 million people are blind or visually impaired due to no access to eye examinations and lack of vision correction, like a simple pair of eyeglasses.

Optometry Giving Sight wants to change this for the better, and so do we.

Optometry Giving Sight is a global organization that helps improve and, in some cases, return vision to people. Since 2007, they have allocated or disbursed more than $6.5 million (U.S.) to 57 projects in 32 countries, helping to provide basic eye care services to over 4 million people, training more than 2,614 mid-level eye care personnel, and supporting the establishment of more than 1,100 vision centers and optical laboratories.

Together, we are making a difference!

Their aim is to help prevent blindness and impaired vision by providing something many of us take for granted: access to a professional eye examination and corrective lenses.

To help further this worthy cause, CooperVision employees around the world donated $47,137.86 as part of Optometry Giving Sight’s World Sight Day Challenge 2012. This amount was then matched by The Cooper Companies, our parent company, and increased to $100,000. In addition, CooperVision is also an ongoing Platinum Global Sponsor.

We’ve made it easy for you to help, too. We've invited those people who purchase contact lenses using a rebate to donate a portion, or all, of his or her CooperVision contact lens rebates to help Optometry Giving Sight continue their work.
