CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (September 13, 2016) – ABB OPTICAL GROUP is raising funds in support of World Sight Day by donating a portion of its Digital Eye Lab sales to Optometry Giving Sight during the month of September through October 13, 2016.

“The World Sight Day Challenge is an important global initiative that ABB Optical is proud to support," said ABB OPTICAL GROUP CEO Angel Alvarez.
