Corporate Social Responsibility


Bridging the vision care gap

All over the world, people struggle with unaddressed vision issues due to a lack of awareness, resources, and intervention.

In fact, nearly 2.2 billion people globally have vision impairment or blindness, but 1 billion of these cases could have easily been prevented.


A proud ally of vision health initiatives across the world

As an industry leader in the eye-care sector, HOYA has both the ability and responsibility to be part of the solution. That’s why we’ve made a commitment to help bridge the vision care gap by partnering with vision care organizations that promote eye-care services, strive to increase eye-health literacy, and are dedicated to providing communities across the world with access to interventions.


Together, we can bridge the vision care gap


A new vision care partnership

HOYA is proud to announce the first vision care partnership of our new Corporate Social Responsibility program.


We’ve teamed up with Orbis – a global organization that mentors, trains and inspires local eye care professionals to save sight in their communities. Orbis is dedicated to reducing avoidable vision issues by creating awareness and providing education. We are humbled by the opportunity to partner with Orbis in bridging the vision care gap.

Our partnership will come to life as three intertwined programs founded on three pillars.


Systemic vision impairment issues require long-term solutions from both local and global organizations. The REACH program aims to provide students with access to in-school vision care by working with partner hospitals to train teachers to perform basic eye examinations. The program will operate primarily in India and Nepal, with an emphasis on helping girls, who tend to be less likely to seek care.


Education is essential to increasing eye health awareness and enabling eye care professionals in developing countries to treat and prevent blindness and visual impairment. HOYA will support Orbis by providing expert optical training and knowledge through CyberSight – an online webinar and training platform for eye care professionals.


Communication builds community. Our goal is to create an established network of partner eye care professionals and vision health organizations who’ll work together to improve the eye health of local communities across the globe. HOYA aims to empower organizations across the world to realize their visions and make a lasting impact through community, communication, and committed sponsorship.
