Giving Vision is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization committed
to providing comprehensive vision care to the community
at large. Our outreach care program is dedicated to screening
children for glasses, eye disease and general eye health
to those in under-serviced communities.
In addition, Giving Vision is dedicated to helping stop
the devastating vision loss of individuals affected by Keratoconus,
a degenerative eye disease, especially teens who are on
the precipice of future. Giving Vision is especially passionate
about helping military personnel discharged from duty due
to a Keratoconus diagnosis.
Vision Care For Children
We have planned agreements with several community eye doctors
to help us provide vision screenings to those in need. There
are so many children who have never had an eye exam. Children
may not know that they do not see well and therefore never
mention this to their parents and teachers.
Do you know that many
children in school do NOT receive an eye test?
This is an unfortunately statistic due to underfunding of
public schools. As a result, many children go undiagnosed
for eye conditions that are simple to fix. Giving
Vision is here to intervene and provide access to ALL children.
Now more than ever, we need your support to service the

Keratoconus is a degenerative
eye disease that causes the clear window of the eye (cornea)
to thin and bulge outward, becoming cone shaped. Keratoconus
causes vision to deteriorate to the point that glasses or
contacts no longer improve the vision.
Over time the eye can continue
to bulge to the point that the only treatment option is
a painful and invasive cornea transplant.
However, in the recent decade
a non-invasive treatment is available that stops this devastating
vision loss. The procedure is costly when not covered by
insurance. Vision loss is devastating, but to know there
is an option to save one’s vision but you cannot afford
the procedure causes great despair.
But there is hope . . .
Giving Vision is dedicated to
helping save the vision of individuals who do not have the
financial means for this vision saving surgery.
Specifically we are dedicated
to helping teenagers newly diagnosed as well as military
personnel that were discharged due to a Keratoconus diagnosis.
