Dear Friends and Supporters,

Recently Healthy Eyes Alliance held its 2nd Annual Meeting during which it ushered in new Board leadership and celebrated its contributions to the vision health and wellness of the tri-state communities it serves.

Truly Healthy Eyes Alliance (HEA) is a success story. Following reorganization 2 years ago when it created its own brand, it has proven itself to be able to maintain financial stability while continuing to implement innovative, relevant, high quality vision saving programs throughout New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

Some highlights include:

  • 5,000 pre-school children living in poor, urban neighborhoods, received free vision screenings and follow-up services including eye exams, glasses and treatment for amblyopia, strabismus and esotropia.

  • The prestigious, New York City-based Children’s Health Fund, contracted with HEA to screen 2,100 preschool and elementary school children in 3 impoverished neighborhoods in the South Bronx and West Harlem.

  • 507 diabetics and pre-diabetics were given free vision screenings and follow-up services in 2 of Newark’s Community Health Centers.

  • 400 adults, including patients and staff were trained in diabetic eye disease prevention, including self-management skills of diabetes.

  • Vouchers valued at $32,400, were distributed to underprivileged children ages 0-18 years of age for free exams and glasses.

  • HEA attended 50 health fairs – in senior centers, pre-schools, community centers, YMCAs, libraries and corporations - that’s an average of one a week!

  • HEA distributed eye safety award certificates to companies who had records of no eye accidents during the calendar year.

  • Its social media – website, Facebook and Twitter – increased its public education outreach and connected HEA to the greater global, online community.

All of these accomplishments and more could not be possible without your annual gifts. If you have already given to HEA this season then “thank you”! If you would like to make a gift, or make an additional Gift of Sight this holiday season, then please do so! Thank you in advance for your support!
