How to Help

Help Give the Gift of Sight – Donate Now!
For nearly three decades, EyeCare America's services have had a lasting impact on the lives of those who lack the means to receive critical, sight-saving  care. Our program has helped patients continue to see their grandchildren at play, function at work to support their families, and preserve the basic quality of life that so many of us take for granted. Through EyeCare America's corps of nearly 6,500 volunteer ophthalmologists (Eye M.D.s) dedicated to serving their communities, more than 90 percent of care provided is at no out-of-pocket cost to the patients. Your gift will help EyeCare America preserve sight for those at risk. This holiday season, make a contribution in honor of a family member, a colleague or a special health care provider. Gifts of all sizes are welcome.
