CooperVision is backing Optometry Giving Sight for an eighth consecutive year and will be taking part in the World Sight Day challenge (10 October).

The contact lens company will raise funds through initiatives taking place at its sites across the world, with individual employees also taking on challenges.

CooperVision has raised over $3m (USD) for Optometry Giving Sight over the past seven years.

Head of communications for Europe, Middle East and Africa at CooperVision, Heathcliffe Clash, said: “Here at CooperVision, we’re extremely proud to support the work of Optometry Giving Sight and its partners in transforming lives in under-served regions of the world. It’s a commitment shared by our employees, who continue to find new and interesting ways to raise funds and play their part in making a difference.”
