Luxottica is a leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of fashion, luxury, sport and performance eyewear, with a strong brand portfolio that includes Ray-Ban and Oakley, license brands Bvlgari, Burberry, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Polo Ralph Lauren, Prada, Tiffany and Versace and more. The Group has a global wholesale network that touches over 130 countries.


By creating its OneSight Foundation, Luxottica helps to improve the vision of people who cannot afford the standard products and/or treatment on the market.


  •   To provide clear vision for those in need.


OneSight is the Foundation of the Luxottica Group dedicated to improving the vision of people by means of voluntary work, research and training.  Participation in OneSight missions requires intense teamwork to optimize the use of resources and time.  As a result, multi-cultural teams form relationships and learn that diversity may unite rather than divide. This collaboration accelerates inclusion and serves as an integrating influence on the different cultures brought into the Group through acquisitions and geographical expansion.

OneSight operates in four areas, each of which includes specific operational programs:

- Global Eye Care, whereby volunteers carry out eye tests and deliver free recycled and newly manufactured eyewear to thousands of adults and children in the poorest areas of the world.

- Regional Eye Care, in which volunteers work together with local partners to help those in need in their regions by opening temporary clinics and using Vision Vans, i.e. mobile units equipped as an eye specialist office. These programs are currently implemented in North America, Australia and China.

- Community Eye Care, whereby Luxottica’s North American and Australian employees improve their communities’ quality of life by means of programs operating in stores, schools, rest homes and other community centers.

- Preventative Eye Care, in which OneSight funds research into treatments and cures for vision-threatening diseases and disorders and invests in developing the next generation of ophthalmologists through the Dr. Stanley Pearle Scholarship Fund.
