Learn About the KindSight 2020 Program


Meet Jeannie, one of the recipients of a pair of KindSight 2020 glasses.

KindSight 2020 is a buy-one-give-one program offered by Columbia Eye Consultants Optometry that provides glasses & eyecare to those who need them.

Simply put, when you buy a pair of glasses at Columbia Eye Consultants, we will partner with you to donate a pair of glasses to a patient in Guatemala. For over twelve years, our practice has sent doctors to a clinic in Guatemala to provide services to individuals in need.

We are fortunate to now have a fully equipped eye care room at the clinic for comprehensive exams. Our teams will be traveling to Guatemala every few months to provide services and products to the people there. Now, your generosity will travel with us as we help make a clear difference in the lives of a people in great need of our services.
