Share the Vision Program
We are not only committed to giving the residents in and around Summerville and North Charleston the best ocular health care possible, we also share this same dedicated vision to those in other areas. In the fall of 2009 we developed the 'Share the Vision' to impact lives in areas where vision correction was not available. This program donates a pair of glasses to someone in need of vision correction for every pair of glasses purchased in our offices. Initially these areas involved the Democratic Republic of Congo, Honduras, and Haiti. Since that point, the program has grown substantially and donates thousands of new glasses to those in need every year. We have also learned that our resources are better utilized in one specific area. Therefore, in 2012, we partnered with a medical team on the ground in Jubilee, Haiti to develop a vision clinic for those in and around that community. Our founder, Dr. Justin Dungan, now travels to Haiti regurlarly to head up this dedicated mission that not only involves helping those in need of vision correction, but also training medical staff and students to provide quality care on their own. This leads to a sustainable improvement in the medical care of Jubilee as well as teaching skills that can help them provide for their families.
