Launched last November, the #DifferenceMakers campaign supports Essilor’s mission of improving lives by improving sight, in order to eradicate poor vision by 2050. Over 1,100 Essilor of America employees participated in the project. They logged more than 1,400 volunteer hours and donated over $22,000 to vision charities in a mere two-month span.
During this campaign, Essilor of America employees were able to earn points on each activity. The three employees with the highest points won the contest and took part in the volunteering mission accompanied by 32 eyecare professionals committed to “making a difference” globally and in their communities. With the help of local Essilor teams, they provided visual screening tests to 2,000 children in Bangkok, Thailand.

Nearly 900 employees, sales teams, ECPs and lab partners gathered to reflect on 2018 accomplishments and discover how Essilor's mission, people, products and commitment to the industry will help the customers stand out and win with patients in 2019.
