HELP RESTORE SIGHT TO SOMEONE IN NEED
Dr. Wilson and Jason's trip abroad providing eyecare and eyewear to the people of Dominica

Simply, to give sight to those in need. It’s easy to take for granted, but proper eyeglasses might mean the difference between literacy and illiteracy or between a working wage and working poor. It might allow a struggling teen to complete their education or enable a child to learn the alphabet.  Beyond that, eyecare for those who would otherwise not have access might, and often does, detect manageable conditions that can lead to blindness without intervention. We are committed and feel rewarded to do our part in giving back and offering quality eyewear and eyecare to those most desperate for it in the world.  Our capacity is as limitless as our communities.  This is why we give sight.

In 2015, Alpine Vision Center launched the iGive Program.  It is simply a buy-one, give-one program: for each qualifying order our patients place, the Alpine Vision staff creates a pair of glasses that are donated to someone in need.  Each year, we work with an international philanthropic organization called VOSH (Volunteer Optometric Services for Humanity) and specifically, a chapter based in Michigan. We send a doctor and/or an optician to the island of Dominica each year to conduct eye exams and distribute the iGive glasses.  When patients select Alpine’s iGive lenses for their frames, they are supporting this incredible program and can feel good about purchasing locally and giving globally.
