Healthy Eyes Eyeglass Program, November, 2022

“Thank you for helping me get my most needed glasses. I am 74 years old and a widow with little income. This is the first time any organization has ever helped me and I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. Thanks to the Methodist Church and the kind and generous volunteers. Thank you to Prevent Blindness Texas.”

Healthy Eyes Eyeglass Program, August 2022

“First of all, I want to thank God for PBT health organization. I don’t want to forget everyone that donated to the program to make it possible for me to be able to see to write this letter. May God bless each and every one of you and your family and everyone PBT is able to help.”

Healthy Eyes Eyeglass Program, October 2022

“Thank you so much to PBT for giving me a pair of new eye glasses. 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.”


Healthy Eyes Eyeglass Program, August 2022

“I had not had my eyes check in awhile and need it done. While visiting with my social worker at Bluitt Flowers and discussing my medical needs, she suggested I apply with PBT. She filled out all the information and shortly after the paperwork came. Everything was explained very well and when I called Lenscrafters, they were aware of this program and took such good care of me. I’m 98 years old, and they made me feel special that day and I picked up my new glasses.”

Healthy Eyes Eyeglass Program, October 2020

“I’m so grateful for your help with my glasses. I’m able to see better and I want to take a foreign language, but was unable to read the material, but with my new glasses I feel more confident to pursue a new language. Thank you so very much! You’re a Godsend!”
