Our Mission

To provide exemplary medical and surgical eye care to under-served individuals.

Our mission is to provide access to state-of-the-art, no-cost refractive, medical and surgical eye care and as well as obtaining optical care and glasses for the growing numbers of medically indigent people in Southwest Florida.

Driven by this mission, the Florida Lions Club Eye Clinic has become a major service organization devoted to providing free eye exams, and medical and surgical treatment of eye disease in our community. The clinic also provides blood pressure testing, glucose monitoring and assistance to needy children and adults in obtaining eyeglasses and surgery.

A component of our mission is to expand the influence of our model of service and to provide guidance to other organizations which are interested in duplicating and implementing this program.

The Clinic and its partner Bonita Springs Lions Club are dedicated to blindness prevention with a specific focus on preventing vision loss from the treatable conditions of glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, cataracts and pterygia.
