By the diversity, to the diversity
In some regions of the world seeing is still a factor of inequality. Not all the people can afford eyeglasses. Either there are no (or only a few) opticians, or eyeglasses are too expensive. A lot of people don’t dare to make eye control because they cannot afford eyeglasses. Seeing has an impact on the quality of life, on the health and wellbeing as well. Seeing belongs to the basic needs of the human being.
The e-Lunet Optic team believes that seeing should no longer be a luxury. Our vision is to make prescription eyeglasses affordable for everyone in Africa, wherever he/she lives, whatever his/her purchasing power.
That is how e-Lunet Optic pledges to poverty, equality, health, and education. And that’s what drives us!
2015, a group of four friends (opticians, computer scientists, businessmen) realized during a journey in Africa, the difficulty to acquire or replace eyeglasses in certain areas of the world. A research revealed the harm caused by this situation.
e-Lunet Optic was born as a business idea tailored to people with low income, living in an area of the world where eyeglasses are still a luxury.
As an optician, facilitating access to prescription glasses is for me a priority. Indeed, they help us in our daily lives, to see those we love, to read our lessons, bus schedules, our favorite books, to see and enjoy even more what is around us.
