Essilor Vision Foundation (EVF) recently launched its advocacy campaign, Eye Can Succeed, which provides free eye check-ups and free prescription eyeglasses to help 10,000 senior high school students pursue higher education and achieve success.
The campaign, led by top actor Piolo Pascual (second from right), kicked off at Rizal High School (RHS), the world’s largest secondary school. With the help of 40 RHS student volunteers, 20 volunteer optometrists, and 20 Essilor Philippines staff examined grades 11 and 12 RHS
students and distributed prescription glasses to those in need. EVF is also set to take Eye Can
Succeed to other public high schools in Metro Manila to help eliminate vision problems among Filipino students as a step towards realizing their dreams for better lives. To learn more, follow @EssilorPH on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and visit www.essilor.com.ph.
