PBT is Grateful for You!

PBT CEO, Heather Patrick is so thankful for all the PBT family that makes our work possible, “It truly has been a remarkable year, and I look forward to seeing our continued impact across the state.” PBT has provided more than 5,000 children and adults with follow-up care, including free exams, glasses, and other eye care treatment and we need your help to continue our mission. We would be honored if you make PBT your nonprofit of choice for GivingTuesday and give the gift of healthy vision to all Texans. Join PBT in our endeavor to ensure all individuals who need vision care, receive it.

“I succeeded in getting glasses. Maybe God blessed me. A small gift but a big effect. Now I can drive and read and I’m not blind anymore. Hurray Prevent Blindness Texas! Thank you so much” Trung Huynh, Southeast Region

PBT is Grateful for… our Partners!

PBT was excited to participate at the 2022 Texas School Nurses Organization (TSNO) Conference held at the Westin Galleria Houston on November 4th and 5th. PBT staff and interns had the opportunity to promote our children’s eye health and safety educational messaging and partnership opportunities with hundreds of school nurses statewide. We love our school nurse partners and look forward to partnering with many more to improve the eye health of students. #2022TSNO

PBT is thankful for our partners who work with clients to provide services and expand our reach to those who need vision care.

PBT is Grateful for… our Board!

“Thank you so much to PBT for giving me a pair of new eyeglasses. Once again I can see better and I am enjoying my new look. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. I live on a fixed income and trying to make ends meet with prices of various things going up. I can’t afford to purchase glasses on my own.” Shirley Tate, North Texas Region

PBT is thankful for our board who understand the importance of one’s overall health affecting vision. Our board members are advocates for early detection, patient support, systems enhancement, public policy, public awareness, and health education.

May God bless each and every one of you and your family and everyone PBT is able to help.” Fred Sparkman, Southeast Region
