We rely on the support of local eye care professionals—known as our Volunteer Vision Network—to provide eye exams and specialty exams for our clients in need of vision care that are uninsured and underserved. We are grateful to have the support of more than 60 eye care professionals to ensure everyone in our community has access to vision care.

We still have a need for more Volunteer Vision Network members as our waiting list for services grows. If you are an eye care professional in Northeast Florida, we hope you will consider volunteering at any capacity.

Current Needs:


We hold vision clinics to provide our qualified clients with an eye exam and prescription glasses. Our clinics are held in Duval, St. Johns, Clay, Baker, and Nassau counties at various locations. We can work around your schedule—mornings, afternoons, weekends, etc. Sovereign Immunity is available if you choose, and we will manage the paperwork.

In Office Services

Many of our volunteer doctors prefer to see our qualified clients in their office during a normal business day. You choose a set number of appointments you’re comfortable with donating. You may also choose to include glasses in your donation; otherwise, we will purchase glasses through a vendor. Our team will work with you to schedule the appointment and will communicate the appointment details directly with the patient. Sovereign Immunity is also available and we will manage all the paperwork.
