To provide eyeglasses and eye exams to individuals worldwide!
American Vision Foundation is a community based non-profit that intervenes primarily in two population sub-sets – children/adolescents and the elderly. Eye exams early and often for children/adolescents foster good habits and are excellent detection mechanisms for a host of future infirmities. Intervention at the elderly stage can detect life-threatening issues that will more than likely be extremely costly to treat down the line.
