Purpose and Activities

The foundation's mission is to assist economically disadvantaged persons, especially those among the young, the elderly, and the disabled. While the foundation supports a limited amount of eye research, its emphasis is to support activities in the area of eye care, and in helping those with sight problems to be self-sufficient.
