Vision Care, Sri Lanka’s largest vision and eye wear solutions provider, celebrated its 30th Anniversary by hosting a Staff Convention that recognized and felicitated their longstanding employees and star performers recently. The event was held in keeping with the COVID-19 guidelines given by the health authorities.
In February 1992, Vision Care commenced operations with the aim of revolutionizing Sri Lanka’s eye care industry. Since inception, the company has been providing scientifically-driven, world-class products and services through a large team of well-trained, highly-experienced Optometrists using ultra-modern equipment. Today, Vision Care offers a wide range of internationally-acclaimed brands of Spectacles, Contact Lenses, Sunglasses, other optical/ophthalmic products and hearing aids at prices to suit every budget and lifestyle.
Vision Care considers Originality, Technology, Accessibility, Sustainability and People as the main pillars of the company. These pillars have played a key role in cementing Vision Care’s position as Sri Lanka’s largest eye care solutions provider. Throughout the years the company has introduced some of the most innovative and technologically enhanced facilities that bring solutions to vision-related issues. Their latest cutting-edge technology introduction is Sports Vision by Vision Care, the only specialised vision centre in Sri Lanka that has the capability to enhance a sportsperson’s visual skills by using cutting-edge technology which is used by international athletes across the world.
Vision Care has continuously invested in employees by establishing an ethical and caring environment. Respecting diversity and promoting inclusion are essential attributes for the sustainability of the company. Currently, 43% of management and operational positions are held by women with plans to raise that to at least 50% by 2022. Vision Care Academy was established in 2008 with the objective of providing in-house training to Vision Care employees. It has evolved into a fully-facilitated training institute that offers a world-class educational experience in Optometry.
Harsha Maduranga – General Manager of Vision Care stated, “The 30th Anniversary is indeed a momentous occasion for any company. We are proud and thankful to each and every member of our team for without their passion, commitment and hard work our journey towards success would not have been possible. Vision Care has successfully remained at the forefront of the technological revolution of the eye care industry in Sri Lanka having introduced various new technologies over the years. We have an expanding network of branches across Sri Lanka that helps us to take our eye care services to a large segment of the population.”
Over the years, Vision Care has demonstrated its commitment to giving back to society by uplifting local communities, helping those affected by natural and man-made disasters and contributing towards sustainable development. One of their most noteworthy projects was “Nethralokana Sathkara” which distributed free pairs of spectacles among deserving Sri Lankans, in all parts of the country.
Vision Care is making plans to expand its branch network to selected cities across the island while continuing to set the benchmark for eye care in Sri Lanka by bringing down the best eye and hearing care technologies. The company intends to create greater awareness among the general public about the advantages of proper eye care by utilizing all available resources including the Mobile Units. To celebrate the 30th Anniversary, Vision Care has also arranged a number of activations in several locations islandwide with societal & environmental wellbeing in focus.
