Vision Stations at Home and Abroad

InFOCUS & Mission Partners Promise
"Eye Care for All"

For millions of people, eye care is too costly or too far from home. InFOCUS, a Houston-based non-profit, is creating a new pathway to eye care for people who need eyeglasses and other basic services.

HOW? By teaming up with health and social service providers serving the poor to establish VISION STATIONS at home and abroad
WHERE? In low-income neighborhoods and rural villages
WHO? InFOCUS, community organizations, and public-spirited eye doctors and optical companies.
WHAT? Assessment, eye health information, referral to eye doctors,
and-if eyeglasses are prescribed-low-cost, high-quality glasses
  • The InFOCUS Center for Primary Eye Care Development trains and equips community workers, mission team members, medical volunteers and health providers to set up and operate Vision Stations.
  • InFOCUS provides workshops on-site and at the University of Houston College of Optometry.
  • The project is supported by the Meadows Foundation, the Pearle Vision Foundation, the Simmons Foundation, the Swalm Foundation, the UH College of Optometry and a grant from the Houston Endowment Inc. for the InFOCUS Center for Primary Eye Care Development.

Today, Vision Stations are making eye care accessible in Houston, Dallas, Tomball, South Texas, and medically underserved communities in Nicaragua, Tanzania and Uganda.

Tomorrow, there could be a Vision Station in any neighborhood or village!
