We have been part of the Sandpoint community for many years, and we plan to be here many more. It is important to treat you as the neighbors that you are in our beautiful small town. That means honesty, integrity, and quality service. Our friends, neighbors and family trust us with their eye care. We hope you will too.
Reaching Out – Uganda and Nicaragua
Imagine walking 20 miles with bare feet to get your eyes checked. These are the type of people we saw in Uganda, Africa when we took hundreds of donated glasses to help people in need to see better. One lady in particular stands out because her prescription was so high. Before we go on these mission trips there is a lot of work that goes into analyzing and categorizing the donated glasses, so we can match the right pair to the right person. Someone in Sandpoint, Idaho had donated a pair of glasses that were +14.00 power, which is very high. Only people who had the old type of cataract surgery, where they used to take out the natural lens and did not have the technology to put a new implant in its place, would ever need such a power in their prescription glasses.
