FAQ

Program Details

Can I volunteer for a OneSight clinic?

Thank you for your interest. Luxottica employees can email OneSightinfo@onesight.org.au for more information on how to apply for a clinic trip.

Why don’t you distribute used eyewear?

OneSight believes in giving its very best to those that need it most. This belief led us to evaluate the use of recycled eyewear on Vision Clinics and we discovered:

  • Less than 10% of collected eyewear met our strict quality standards
  • Only 2 countries on OneSight’s 2013 Clinic schedule allowed the use of refurbished glasses.

FAQ

Providing Access to Care

I’m a social service professional who would like to help those I serve receive access to eyewear. Can OneSight help?

The OneSight voucher program helps meet immediate needs. OneSight’s voucher program partners with local nonprofits like Lion’s Club and Prevent Blindness to establish financial and physical need. Then patients in need are referred to OneSight’s network of participating eye care professionals who provide free eye exams and glasses.

I’m a school nurse. Can OneSight help the kids at my school?

To learn about options for helping your students get access to vision care, please contact at OneSightinfo@onesight.org.au.

I’d like to host a OneSight clinic in my country.

Our charitable Vision Clinic schedule is set 1-2 years out and at this time we are not adding locations. OneSight looks at several factors in bringing care to specific regions including visual and financial need, access to vision care, strong in-country partners and the potential to build long-term sustainable projects. We will continue to evaluate and assess other areas to expand OneSight programming.
