EYE MITRA OPTICIAN
At Coolwinks.com, our mission is to improve your life by improving your sight but it does not stop here. We are proud to be part of a global drive to create access to vision care for people everywhere. Our parent entity, Essilor International has grassroots initiatives across 4 continents that have helped more than 2 million people have first-time access to vision care in the past 2 years.
In India where there are 550 million people who suffer from uncorrected vision, there is only 1 qualified optometrist for every 25,000 people. Refraction units and spectacle distribution channels are scarce outside of cities and towns and the majority of rural populations have never had their eyes tested. The Eye Mitra Optician programme aims to bring vision care where it's needed in remote locations as well as contribute to the social and economic development of villages. The programme helps create a respected profession and livelihood for local unemployed youth and, improve life opportunities with corrected vision for the local community.”
