Giving Vision

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 children of our community.

It only costs $200 for an eye exam and glasses for a child.

Imagine how great you will feel to know that your gift has helped to provide the gift of sight to the children of Los Angeles.

Keratoconus Treatment

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.

Imagine the hope you will give someone by saving their sight.

Hear from Joey on how her hope was restored by Keratoconus treatments.
