Giving back to the community
We Serve our Community
Like our Lions who founded us, we believe in serving our community. We strive every day to fulfill our mission and serve our community.
We serve donor families, the medical community, and recipients in communities nationally and internationally through education, research, and the gift of sight.
We're here to help. If you or a loved one need financial help with a sight related surgery, contact us to see if you may qualify for financial assistance, or if we can refer you to one of our partners for assistance. All outreach is done on a case-by-case basis.
We are proud to say that more than half of our full-time staff are local members of their Lions Club, dedicated to changing the world through kindness and service.
We accept donated glasses for the Lions Club. All used glasses are repurposed to help those in need. If you would like to donate, please visit contact us.
