Eyes of Hope: a Million More

Eyes of Hope: a Million More

At VSP Global®, our mission is simple: We help people see.

And the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) is dedicated, and focused on, creating healthy cities.

In 2016, we will work to bring eye care to those in need by co-hosting multi-day events in 10 cities across the U.S. For each event, VSP will provide no-cost eye exams and glasses for qualifying adults and children in need through our VSP Mobile Eyes® program.

Beyond 2016, we will work with the cities to determine how to create sustainable access to eye care services even when the mobile eye clinics are gone. This will support VSP’s larger goal of providing access to eye care to 1 million individuals by 2020.
