Each year Virginia Eye Foundation provides significant support to Hampton Roads underinsured community by assisting in sight saving surgeries and care. In addition to the care directly provided to individuals, in 2015, the Virginia Eye Foundation made a donation of $30,000 to the Lackey Free Clinic in Yorktown to provide eye care services for those in need on the Peninsula.
Virginia Eye Foundation supports continuing education of local health care professionals. Several workshops and seminars are offered throughout the year focusing on a variety of eye care topics, including new technology and procedures.
The Virginia Eye Foundation Visual Sciences Scholarship Fund has been established to further the mission of the organization and provide much needed scholarship dollars to deserving and eligible students within the Hampton Roads region who wish to pursue a career in the visual sciences at the collegiate level. Scholarships are awarded to two high school seniors each Spring for college courses the following Fall semester. The award will be $32,000 over the course of four years. All applicants have been received for 2016.
