What we do: We award grants to non-profits conducting vision research, education or patient care.  We don’t see patients, we aren’t doctors or researchers or educators – but on our Resource Directory we list many organizations that do provide those services. 

Do you need to see an eye doctor?   That's not us. But here are some numbers: 

205/325-8100 UAB Callahan Eye Hospital  or 205/325-8620 UAB Department of Ophthalmology.   For eye emergencies ONLY call 205/325-8254 

Mission: To serve as a catalyst to improve eyesight through education, research and access to care.  Vision: Making a difference in the eyes of the world.  

Grant Application:  Applications for funding are now being handled through a partnership with the Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham and their online grant application portal.  The deadline for 2019-2020 funding has passed.
