Children’s Sight Week 2017

During the week of December 18-22, 2017, children in Santa Barbara will receive free eye exams and Goleta Valley Optical vouchers for glasses from SEE International’s local Santa Barbara Vision Care Program.  Due to the Thomas Wildfire we have expanded services to serve any community members and first responders affected by the fire as well.

For children, proper eyesight is essential to doing well in school.  Uneducated, sight-impaired children are likely to grow into uneducated, sight-impaired adults, and the cycle of economic hardship continues. SEE and the Santa Barbara Vision Care Program aim to break this cycle to empower adults and children with sight.

About Our Santa Barbara Vision Care Program

SEE International has a deep commitment to helping low-income individuals in the Santa Barbara, CA area gain access to free eye care. Established in the 1980’s, the Santa Barbara Vision Care Program (SBVCP) provides uninsured local adults and children with free comprehensive eye exams, glasses, medicine, and essential eye surgeries for eye conditions such as cataracts and pterygium.

Each year the clinic holds at least two major events to serve the community. Primarily Veterans Day in November and Children’s Sight Week in December. Follow us on Facebook for updates!
