LAKE FOREST, Calif., April 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Sport specialty sunglass retailer N3L Optics announced today a charitable partnership with OneSight, a Luxottica Group Foundation dedicated to providing clear vision to those in need around the world and at home. The partnership between N3L Optics and OneSight marks the beginning of N3L's eyewear collection drive leading up to Earth Day, April 22nd.
Working together in partnership with local school districts, N3L will donate all eyewear collected to OneSight to be recycled and hand-delivered to those in need on OneSight's Global Clinics.
The collection drive includes N3L's retail locations in Denver, CO, Dallas, TX, El Paso, TX, Orlando, FL, and San Mateo, CA. The market that collects the most eyewear will win a OneSight Vision Van Clinic in their area in 2011. OneSight's Vision Van, SeeMore is an optical shop on wheels where local doctors and volunteers provide complete eye exams and new eyewear to all recipients on site.
"We are thrilled to have established this partnership with OneSight and look forward to helping to improve the vision of so many that are in need," says Kendra Reichenau, Senior Vice President of N3L Optics. "Poor vision and the lack of proper eye care can have a tremendous impact on a child's ability perform in the classroom and we're certainly glad to do our part," adds Reichenau.
Since 1986, OneSight has provided free vision care and eyewear to more than seven million people and have granted millions towards research and education.
In addition, N3L has also dedicated this month to showcasing environmentally friendly products from influential sunglass manufacturers such as Oakley®, Revo, Smith and Dragon. Each brand has made a dedicated effort to develop eyewear produced from recycled or sustainable materials and has worked to improve their manufacturing process in order to reduce the impact on our environment.
