Surgical Eye Expeditions International
updated: Feb 09, 2013, 10:00 AM

"Surgical Eye Expeditions (SEE) International is a Santa Barbara-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides medical, surgical, and educational services through volunteer ophthalmic surgeons to restore sight to disadvantaged individuals worldwide. Since 1974, SEE's doctors have examined more than 3 million patients and performed over 420,000 operations worldwide. In 2012, SEE's volunteer doctors performed more than 11,000 sight-restoring, life-transforming surgeries on 146 expeditions in 35 different countries.

Locally, SEE International's Santa Barbara Vision Care Program (SBVCP) provides comprehensive eye exams, vouchers for eyeglasses, and eye surgeries to low-income individuals with no insurance coverage - all completely free of cost to the patient. In 2012, 841 patients received free eye exams, 433 patients received free eyeglasses from the Santa Barbara Eyeglass Factory, and 25 patients received free eye surgery."

"A long-time donor pledged this week to donate one dollar ($1) to SEE International for each new person who Likes SEE's Facebook page during the month of February 2013. The donor will give up to $5,000, which would fund sight-restoring eye surgeries for 46 people!

YOU can help SEE collect $1 instantly by going to SEE International's Facebook page and clicking "Like". And if you want to maximize your impact, click "Share" to tell your friends about SEE. Please hurry! SEE International's Facebook page needs 200 new Likes per day in order to reach 5,000 Likes by February 28."
