As your Kelowna optometrist, we’re proud to give back to our community and beyond. iSight Optometry is committed to numerous sustainable eye care projects. While many in North America may take vision privileges for granted, millions of people around the globe are much less fortunate.
Our dedicated team participated in the 2017 World Sight Day Challenge for Optometry Giving Sight and we are thrilled to be named as a Silver Award recipient!
Thank You Staff & Clients!
Not everyone has access to healthy vision services. Taking part in the World Sight Day Challenge has helped to transform the lives of more than 600 million people who are visually impaired or blind, providing them access to an eye exam and the gift of sight with a pair of glasses.
Financial contributions are utilized to help train local eye care professionals. Donations are additionally used to create vision centres in communities that are less fortunate. Providing affordable glasses and vision care throughout locations where these amenities do not currently exist would not be possible without the support of our clients and our team.
Optometry Giving Sight
Did you know that Optometry Giving Sight is currently funding 47 different projects in 24 countries and are responsible for helping to support more than 117 projects in 39 countries? Funding currently supports nine Colleges or Schools of Optometry around the globe.
We are excited to announce a newly opened education centre in Haiti; projected to graduate 80 new locally trained eye care professionals over the next decade. This translates to the ability to offer comprehensive eye care to approximately 360,000 Haitians each year! This is just one of the many exceptional projects Optometry Giving Sight contributes to, thanks to support by the optometric profession.
