About EVF

Better Life Through Better Sight

The Essilor Vision Foundation carries out free school screening across New Zealand. It targets schools in low decile areas. Post screening it arranges comprehensive optometric eye examinations within the local area, alongside the provision of corrective spectacles.

The Foundation is indebted to a generous and caring group of volunteer optometrists, optometry students, orthoptists, dispensers, low vision professionals and Essilor New Zealand staff for their kind assistance.

It is funded from tax deductible donations received from generous corporations and individuals. If you would like to make a donation, please head over to our donation page.
