More than 40 million low-income families in the United States cannot afford the cost of routine eye care. Even those that qualify for assistance struggle to find the means necessary to gain access to care due to basic hurdles such as difficulties in applying for financial aid, transportation to eye care locations, timing conflicts with work, etc.
Seeing and Believing aims to overcome this obstacle by taking the eye care directly to the individual. Seeing and Believing is a non-profit organization that provides prescription eyeglasses to low-income families and individuals. Many of those we aim to serve have never had prescription eye glasses. Some of them have never even had an eye exam!!
