Special Olympics - Lions Club International Opening Eyes Program

Through LCIF, Lions are empowering those with disabilities to lead more independent, productive and fulfilling lives. LCIF has been committed to assisting people with disabilities through grants that build or expand schools and vocational training centers. Since 2001, the Special Olympics Lions Clubs International Opening Eyes Program has screened more than 100,000 athletes, providing diagnosis for vision-related problems, as well as corrective and protective eyewear. The program also teaches and prepares vision specialists, including professors and students, on how to better care for this underserved population.


The Special Olympics-Lions Clubs International Opening Eyes program celebrates 15 years of changing lives.
