How Your Gifts Are Used

How You Can Help

Your donation helps EyeCare America save sight:  it’s that simple.

Through our award-winning programs to increase awareness about eye diseases, provide free eye health information and to facilitate eye care with no-out-of-pocket cost to the patients, EyeCare America has provided over 1,000,000 people with the care and resources they need to preserve their sight and that of their loved ones.

EyeCare America’s success in providing free services is made possible by the many contributions we receive from our donors and the 7,000 U.S. ophthalmologists nationwide who volunteer their services.  Because of this support, EyeCare America eliminates cost as a barrier to receiving sight-saving eye care.  In fact, more than 90 percent of the care provided has no cost to the patients.

One generous gift from you not only provides medical and surgical eye care to those most in need, but it also has the potential reach thousands of people with eye health messages and disease prevention.

For every $25 gift received, EyeCare America can provide sight-saving services to one person.  The chart below illustrates how your gift will make a difference:
