Based in Greenville, SC, Surgeons for Sight seeks to serve those in our own backyard. We partner with local agencies, churches and programs to reach the low income and homeless in Greenville and the Upstate of South Carolina. We provide eye care through the following programs:
Surgeons for Sight organizes vision screenings at local agencies. At these screenings, we provide distance and near vision tests, educate on eye health, provide reading glasses and organize follow up care through Surgeons for Sight.
If your agency is interested in hosting a vision screening for your clients, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regular vision screenings are available through our eye clinic at Triune Mercy Center every other Tuesday. To set up an appointment, please contact Triune Mercy Center.
The Vision Van
Surgeons for Sight launched the Vision Van in March of 2015! The Vision Van features equipment to
test visual acuity as well as take photos of the back of the eye with a fundus camera. The images from this camera are analyzed by our volunteer physicians at Southern Eye Associates through telemedicine and will help us detect signs of diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and macular degeneration. The Vision Van was made possible by Fluor Golf for Greenville, the Jolley Foundation, Bon Secours St. Francis and many others.
Donating Physician Time
Eye exams are provided for Surgeons for Sight patients by volunteer physicians. Physicians donate their expertise and time to our organization.
Currently our volunteer physicians include the doctors at Southern Eye Associates. If you are an optometrist or ophthalmologist willing to donate your time to Surgeons for Sight, please contact Natalie Terlitsky at email@example.com.
