United Nations’ recommendation to governments to ensure good vision of all road users
Essilor celebrates this historical milestone for the vision care community at a very important moment, as countries gradually lift their lockdown restrictions in the context of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and people get back on the road again. It represents a powerful incentive to generalise eye tests and facilitate access to eyecare. Essilor reinforces its commitment towards safe mobility, as a vision care leader and as a donor to the United Nations Road Safety Fund.
