Essilor Announces Mobile App To Provide Credible Eye Health Information, Encourage Eye Exams

Essilor Announces Mobile App To Provide Credible Eye Health Information, Encourage Eye Exams

In response to growing demand for timely, reliable eyecare information online, Essilor of America announces the development of a new mobile application for consumers. Once launched, the AskAboutEyes app will help consumers find relevant information on individual issues or concerns about their eyes prior to visiting their eyecare practitioner (ECP). While only 3.5 percent of eyewear is purchased online today, nearly 40 percent of consumers reportedly search the web for information prior to visiting an eye care practitioner. Because of the specialized nature of eye care, there remain very few trusted and credible options for consumers seeking information on vision and vision correction, even among traditional medical resource websites. “We at Essilor know that a trained eyecare practitioner is the only way to get accurate recommendations for vision correction options, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of any eye condition or disease, but we also recognize that many consumers like to feel informed and prepared before meeting with an eyecare professional,” said Howard Purcell, OD, FAAO, Dipl., senior vice president customer development, Essilor of America. “The AskAboutEyes app will allow consumers to easily learn more about their options in a convenient way, while helping them find a practitioner who can deliver the expertise they need when making these important healthcare decisions.” AskAboutEyes will be available as a Smartphone app, and the identities of the consumer and the eyecare professional (ECP) will not be identified. This will allow consumers to ask individual questions and even send photographs to an ECP for additional details and guidance. To develop the most comprehensive content, Essilor partnered with AllAboutVision.com, an independent resource providing consumers with hundreds of pages of trustworthy, up-to-date information on vision correction and eye health. Launched in 2000, the site is certified by the Health on the Net Foundation and serves more than 600,000 weekly unique visitors, measured by Google Analytics. AskAboutEyes will be led by Paul Karpecki, OD, FAAO, an esteemed practitioner and key opinion leader in medical optometry. Dr. Karpecki will manage a network of ECPs across the country to ensure users are receiving precise and timely answers and advice. The app is not intended to be a diagnostic tool or to usurp the independent ECP. It is to serve as a trustworthy informational resource that will drive more consumers to their eyecare practitioners for comprehensive eye exams and treatment, as well as products and other valuable services. Expected to launch later this year, the AskAboutEyes app will be highlighted on the Essilor Newsroom at news.essilorusa.com and available free for download on the App Store and Google Play. To find more information on AskAboutEyes, email us at AskAboutEyes@essilorusa.com.

Kids Vision for Life Receives $50K Donation Through Social Media Campaign

Kids Vision for Life Receives $50K Donation Through Social Media Campaign

As part of its ongoing commitment to eliminating poor vision and its lifelong consequences, Kids Vision for Life has teamed with spokeswoman Jennie Garth and Alcon’s THE eyeSOLUTION™ for its “Get an A+ in Eye Care” campaign. Through the initiative, which works to educate families about the importance of vision health as they prepare for the new school year, Alcon is donating $50,000 to Kids Vision for Life after receiving 50,000 “likes” on THE eyeSOLUTION Facebook page. Launched in 2008 by the Essilor Vision Foundation, Kids Vision for Life is a cost-effective approach that aims to remove poor vision as a barrier to children learning at their full capacity. Through mobile clinics in schools, vision fests at central locations, and special events, Kids Vision for Life provides vision services to in-need students across the U.S. at no cost to the families. “Every day, we learn more about the critical connection between strong, healthy vision and a student’s educational experience,” said Stephen Shawler, president of Essilor Vision Foundation. “Research shows that 25 percent of U.S. school children have a vision problem significant enough to affect learning, a statistic that the Foundation is determined to change. We’re thrilled at the response to the ‘Get an A+ in Eye Care’ campaign and grateful to Alcon to helping support this incredibly important initiative. Every dollar we raise brings us one step closer to providing essential eye care to all American students in need.” The campaign is the latest effort in Alcon’s partnership with Kids Vision for Life, which was created by the Essilor Vision Foundation to provide local children with access to appropriate eye care. Alcon’s THE eyeSOLUTION program exists to make it easy for people to find the best care for their eyes. Through their partnership, the organizations hope to help 100,000 children by 2020. In promotion of the “Get an A+ in Eye Care” campaign and Kids Vision for Life, spokeswoman Jennie Garth, an actress best known for her decade-long role on Beverly Hills, 90210, attended a school day in Fort Worth this summer and participated in a media day in New York. Kids Vision for Life is rapidly expanding its reach in significant areas, particularly with its mobile clinics, where elementary school students receive examinations and vision screenings, and those in need of glasses can select their own frames to be delivered the same day or within a few weeks. It plans to launch the Mobile Clinic 5 in Fort Worth this fall, which is expected to reach 5,000 students, and is fundraising for new clinics in national Kids Vision for Life locations St. Louis and Alexandria, Va. Mobile Clinic 3 will also be traveling to service schools in St. Louis, Alexandria and Atlanta. To help address the eye care needs of those who require but do not have access to vision correction on an international level, Essilor recently launched new foundations in Bangalore, India, and Singapore, and is currently developing new programs in Canada and South America. Since 2008, Kids Vision for Life has provided more than 305,000 vision screenings, dispensed more than 83,000 pairs of glasses and performed eye exams for youth across the country.
