Encouraging Outlooks

Rodenstock has always stood for first-class products and individual service – but also for the good things. Together with the aid organisation Eye Care Mission e.V. and ophthalmic optics students from Berlin, the Munich spectacles manufacturer has donated sunglasses and lenses for Cambodia thereby giving several hundred people their vision back, true to the motto of "See better".

Together for a good cause
The Eye Care Mission e.V. organisation has worked for many years already, providing ophthalmic optics care to the people of Cambodia. The people there are still suffering from the effects of the gruesome reign of terror of the Khmer Rouge who murdered anyone wearing spectacles as possible intellectuals. The poor rural population in particular still has hardly any chance of getting medial or ophthalmic care. This is reason enough for Eye Care Mission e.V. to stand up against preventable blindness and to provide local aid. Among others, students who are studying optometry at the Technical University of Berlin are active in the organisation. They, together with Rodenstock, have distributed several hundred sunglasses and lenses valued at several thousand Euros to children and adults in Cambodia.

Spectacles for a good purpose
Rodenstock provided the frames and lenses free of charge, and everything was in the well-known Rodenstock quality. Under the direction of the Eye Care Mission e.V. aid organisation, the Berlin students donated the work onsite including refraction, screenings, grinding the lenses and fitting the spectacles. In addition, the students trained the staff of the eye clinic in the province of Takeo so that they are able to take care of their patients professionally in the future.
Jürgen Pupke of Eye Care Mission e.V and his employees are happy about the successful campaign: "Together with our partner Rodenstock, we were able to contribute our expertise to decisively improve the quality of life of many people. The generous donation of material from Rodenstock was what made this project possible."
