Over 700 children benefited with vision care from the 2023 OneSight vision Clinic, a joint effort between FSL and OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation. FSL sponsors the clinic every October in its hometown, Kansas City, Missouri, and encourages employees to volunteer their time to staff the event. This allowed:

  • 710 students received an eye exam
  • 670 students left the client with a new pair of glasses
  • 40 students received glasses that manufacturing off-site

The annual vision clinic has grown from a done-day event to a week-long event in 2023. The clinic leverages FSL volunteers and underwriting, along with OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation's proven clinic model and manufacturing capabilities, enabling most participants in need of glasses to receive newly prescribed, quality eyewear onsite.

"It's been an incredible journey to watch the program blossom to reach more children every year," said FSL Director, Specialty Benefits, Melinda Everly. "FSL employees are passionate about children seeing more, doing more. Nothing compares to the feeling of knowing we're doing something special, contributing to children receiving vision care that will change their life."

Giving back to the community has been a core value of FSL since its inception, embraced and carried forward by the Jones family and engaged employees.

FSL President Bryce Jones said, "The OneSight Clinic serves underprivileged students in grades K-12 who otherwise might not have the opportunity to get an eye exam or prescriptive glasses. It's an amazing experience to watch children light up when their vision is improved and enhanced. Vision insurance if FSL's largest product line, so financial support and participation in the Vision Clinic is a  logical extension of the company."
