We Do What We Can to Help!

At Glasses To Go Mobile Vision Care we have been fortunate enough to be able to give back to our favourite charitable organizations by volunteering our time, raising awareness and making donations of gently worn and rejuvenated used glasses.

Many Individuals, locally and abroad, need the gift of sight and Glasses To Go Mobile Vision Care has tried to make a difference for them. 

In March of 2012, 2014, and 2016 our vision team traveled as part of a medical mission to a rural community named Maribel, outside of the city of Jacmel which is South East of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. While it was a beautiful mountainous area with flowing rivers, we were shocked to find out that the water was contaminated and full of parasites. The heat and the long line-ups of people for clinical visits were not something we were prepared for emotionally. The locals’ poor living conditions and lack of hope for a better life, often brought me to exhaustion and tears. 

We examined over 100 patients daily: elderly needing reading glasses, children with presbyopia, many patients suffering from pteryglum, cataracts among both young and old due to severe dehydration and rampant pink eye infections. We also gave out hundreds of pairs of safety eyewear. Our patients were gracious, waiting hours to be seen, and grateful for anything that we could do to alleviate their vision problems. 

Glasses To Go Mobile Vision Care truly feels privileged to play a small part in missions abroad, such as in Haiti, but we also try to help locally by donating to the Bissell Centre, Edmonton and in Alberta locations such as the Whitefish Kikino Settlement. 

Glasses To Go Mobile Vision Care truly feels privileged to play a small part in helping those in need.

We wish to thank all our friends, clients, and other supporters of our mission…without you we couldn’t do what we do!
