Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity (VOSH)

 

The LFEC Team at the Honduras Clinic

Lyons Family Eye Care is proud to support Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity (VOSH International).  The primary mission of VOSH International is to facilitate the provision of vision services worldwide for people who cannot afford nor obtain such care.  VOSH International has partnered with the World Health Organization and pledged to eliminate preventable blindness by the year 2020.  To learn more about VOSH International and its humanitarian efforts, please click here.

From February 8-15, the Lyons Family Eye Care team joined VOSH International in Tela, Honduras.  Working with 60 other VOSH volunteers, we were able to provide vision services to over 2,500 Hondurans and dispensed over 2,000 pairs of glasses and sunglasses.  With the support of our community we hope to continue to participate in VOSH International missions across the globe.
