Mission for Vision was established in 2003 by Ian Squire, a dispensing optician based in Shepperton, Middlex. www.isoptician.co.uk Once a year teams are assembled combining opticians and volunteers to carry out comprehensive eye care programs in the remote regions of the developing world, predominantly in Africa.
What we do
- Sight testing
- Dispensing glasses for distance and near vision
- Providing protective sunglasses
- Administering medication
- Organising and funding cataract operations
- Funding other local projects which benefit the community
As a christian charity we partner with missionaries and churches in the areas we visit. They provide all the logistical support we need to ensure our missions are a great success. The clinical work is combined with Christian ministry with a view to providing vision both physical and spiritual.
