What is the KindSight 2020 program?
For over 15 years, the doctors of Columbia Eye Consultants Optometry have regularly traveled to Chichicastenango, Guatemala to provide eye care and eyeglasses to people there in need of our assistance. Kindsight 2020 is the product of merging our practice in Columbia with our desire to provide a sustainable plan for provision of eye care missions to Guatemala. KindSight 2020 is a buy-one-give-one program offered by Columbia Eye Consultants Optometry that provides glasses and eye care to those who need them. Simply put, when you buy a pair of glasses at Columbia Eye Consultants Optometry, we will partner with you to donate a pair of glasses to a patient in Guatemala. We are fortunate to now have a fully equipped eye care facility at the clinic in Guatemala 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.
How can I contribute?
Kindsight 2020 is a buy-one-give-one program. Every time a patient purchases a pair of glasses from one of our offices, we will donate a pair of prescription eyeglasses to be taken to Guatemala by one of our doctors during an upcoming medical mission trip. If you desire, you can even select the actual eyeglasses that will go to the Guatemalan recipient. We will even send you an email from Guatemala when the patient receives the glasses! In addition to donating the glasses, CECO will also donate a set dollar amount from every sale to fund future eye care mission trips.
How does this program work?
Multiple times each year KindSight 2020 doctors, funded by your business with us, will travel to Guatemala with the actual eyeglasses that you selected to be donated. We will spend a week in Guatemala providing eye care to those who do not have the means to provide for themselves. Prescription glasses will be delivered to those patients and you will get to see the final product in the photo of the recipient wearing his or her KindSight 2020 glasses. This program conceived and developed by our team of doctors. It is funded entirely by sales from our practice and private donations.
