Lions are recognized worldwide for their service to the blind and visually impaired. Today, in addition to their international Sight First program, Lions extend their commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts.
Dr. Adler is the Vice President of Bradenton’s chapter Manatee River Lions Club. The Adler Eye Institute is a proud sponsor of the annual golf tournament to raise funds for the visually impaired.
The World Health Organization estimated that corrective lenses can improve the eyesight of one-fourth of the world’s population. Unfortunately, for many people a pair of glasses is both unaffordale and unobtainable. The donation of old eyeglasses to the needy in the US and abroad can help solve this problem. Local Lions Clubs conduct eyeglass recycling programs. Used glasses are cleaned, repaired, and classified by prescription, then distributed free to needy people in the US and developing countries around the world.
The Adler Eye Institute accepts donations of glasses and Dr. Adler encourges his patients to donate in hopes it will improve the eyesight of those in need. Please contact our office at 941-753-0220 if you wish to donate a pair of glasses or you need further information.
