Healthy Eyes Eyeglass Program, March 2024

“I am truly appreciative for what you all have done for me. I am so grateful for the help that you have provided me. I was in need of glasses but as a single and non-working elderly, I have no one to provide it for me. May God bless you greatly and may you continue to bless others in need. Thank you so much!”

VSP Vision Eyes of Hope Program, April 2024

“I was referred to and received your services through First Methodist Church. I had my eyes examined thoroughly by Dr. John McCullough of South Texas Eye Center in Victoria, TX. It had been several years since I’ve had an eye examination as complete as his exam. I was pleased! There was a change in my prescription. Afterwards, I selected a new pair of frames and ordered new glasses. I’m looking forward to seeing better and being able to read easier and without strain. Thank you for the service provided to me. It is so greatly appreciated!”

Healthy Eyes Eyeglass Program, April 2024

“For 4 years I’ve been squinting a lot and giving myself so many wrinkles from it and my head hurt all the time. I was so frustrated all the time because I couldn’t read anything. But now thanks to this program I cried when I put my new glasses on today, I could see everything, and I’ve been so excited. Thank God for them. Thank you!”

Sight for Students Program, April 2024

“Thank you to Prevent Blindness Texas, Fabian was able to receive a new pair of much needed glasses which boosted his confidence. We appreciate your help.”

Healthy Eyes Eyeglass Program, March 2024

“The Healthy Eyeglass Program really made a difference in my life. I saw things that were clear. My vision is very bad. There is something awesome about being able to see. Thanks f all your help!”
