EYE MITRA OPTICIAN
At Coolwinks.com, our mission is to improve your life by improving your eyesight and it does not stop here. We are proud to be a part of a global drive which focuses to offer vision care facilities to as many people as it can. Our parent entity, Essilor International has grassroots for this initiative present in across 4 continents that have helped more than 2 million people to 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 also limited outside cities and towns and the majority of rural population has never had their eyes tested. The Eye Mitra Optician programme aims to bring vision care wherever it is needed especially in remote locations as well as to contribute to the social and economic development of many villages. The programme helps create a respected profession and livelihood for local unemployed youth and improve their lives with corrected vision.
The Vision is to have 10,000 working Eye Mitra Opticians by 2020.
