Giving the Gift of Sight with RestoringVision
Eye Doctors of Washington is partnering with RestoringVision once again to help improve vision around the globe. For every LASIK procedure performed at Eye Doctors of Washington between now and August 1st, we will donate 100 pairs of reading glasses to people in need.
Vision is so important! We are all connected by the need for clear vision. To work, to learn, and to be part of a community – Life requires clear vision and that means corrected vision.
2.5 billion people around the world are struggling with poor vision. 544 million people around the globe need reading glasses but live in developing countries with limited or no access to glasses.
Together we can make a difference.
To solve any global health problem, it takes a village. Eye Doctors of Washington has partnered with RestoringVision, a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to distributing reading glasses and sunglasses to those in need.
RestoringVision has already supplied over 7 million glasses in 124 countries worldwide. Their mission is to provide low priced glasses to those in need. Join us and help people around the world see clearly again.
In 2017 Eye Doctors of Washington reached our goal of donating 10,000 pairs of glasses in partnership with RestoringVision! We are so grateful to everyone who supported our mission. With your help, we were able to provide glasses to 10,000 people in need, and we look forward to helping even more with our 2018 fundraiser!
