Eye Surgery Program

Eye Surgery Program

The Eye Surgery Program was created more than 40 years ago to help financially needy South Carolinians receive eye surgery or limited treatments they need but cannot afford. Qualified applicants receive quality medical treatment with dignity, confidentiality and compassion.

Lions Vision Services allocates funds each year for this program. The Lions staff secures financial and personal health information from applicants referred to the program from across the state. Each case is thoroughly examined and weighed against established qualifications and guidelines. Every year, the program is able to help people from all parts of the state and from all age groups.

Our staff works hard to make the best use of its funds. Thanks to the generosity of doctors and hospitals across the state, Lions Vision Services pays for services at special negotiated rates for each procedure we sponsor. This allows us to help many more people each year.

If approved, Lions Vision Services will cover the physician, facility, and anesthesia fees for the client’s surgery. Any pre or post-op fees are the responsibility of the patient.
