Servants for Sight was formed in 2009 by physicians in Greenville, SC. After many years of volunteering their time and donating funds to provide eye exams, eyeglasses, and eye surgeries to under-resourced people, they decided to unite their efforts and expand their reach. Now, our mission is to follow the model of Jesus by bringing hope and healing to our communities through preventative and restorative eye care.
We develop community partnerships and involve like-minded individuals to help thousands of people get the gift of sight. We are a nonprofit organization and serve those in need by:
- Providing free vision screenings on our mobile unit.
- Referring disadvantaged people in the Upstate of South Carolina to our volunteering eye care practitioners. Physicians donate their expertise while Servants for Sight funds the “out of pocket” costs such as: lenses, glasses, and surgery fees.
- Training Christian mission groups 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 Kenya, 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 also been to Ecuador and Haiti to train in-country doctors to care for their people.
