Vision Care, an eye wear solutions provider, celebrated its 30th anniversary by hosting a staff convention that recognised and felicitated their longstanding employees and star performers recently.  

Since inception in February 1992, Vision Care 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 ability 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 set up in 2008 to provide in-house training to its employees. It has evolved into a fully-facilitated training institute that offers a world-class educational experience in optometry.

General Manager of Vision Care, Harsha Maduranga said, “The 30th anniversary is indeed a momentous occasion for any company. We are proud and thankful to 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,” he said.

Over the years, Vision Care has demonstrated its commitment to giving back to society by uplifting local communities. 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 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 hopes to create greater awareness among the public about the advantages of proper eye care by using all available resources including mobile units. To celebrate the 30th anniversary, Vision Care has also arranged a number of activities in several locations islandwide with societal and environmental well-being in focus.
