Servants for Sight was formed in late 2009 by physicians in Greenville, SC. After many years of volunteering their time and donating funds to provide eye exams, eyeglasses and eye surgery to disadvantaged people in South Carolina and in third world countries, they decided to unite their efforts and expand their reach.
Servants for Sight was founded with the mission to help disadvantaged people, both locally and abroad, get the eye care they need to lead productive lives in glorification of God. Our goal is to follow the model of Jesus by bringing hope and healing to the world through the gift of sight.
By developing community partnerships and involving like-minded individuals, Servants for Sight has been able to reach many with the gift of sight. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and serve those in need by:
- Providing free vision screenings on our mobile vision van.
- Referring disadvantaged people in the upstate of South Carolina to our partnering physicians for eye exams, glasses and sight saving surgery. Physicians donate their expertise while Servants for Sight funds the actual “out of pocket” costs that include: lenses, glasses, and surgery fees.
- Training Christian mission groups on how to include vision screenings and glasses as part of their mission trips. Servants for Sight provides all necessary training, equipment and supplies. Payment for glasses is not required, however; donations are greatly appreciated.
- Providing eye exams, eye glasses and eye surgery in different countries around the world, currently El Salvador and the Dominican Republic. Servants for Sight takes trips to bring eye care of both cataract surgeries and optometry to communities that have no access to care. In the past we’ve been to Ecuador and Haiti to train in-country doctors to care for their people.
Our mission is about changing people’s lives with improved vision and spreading the word of God. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping or learning more about us.
