Who We Serve

LVS services directly impact the blind and visually impaired population in SC living in poverty, specifically those living at or below 200% of Federal Poverty Guidelines. Most of this population (86% on average) is uninsured. Client demographic data reveals that LVS programs disproportionately serve higher numbers of ethnic minority populations than is representative of the population, allowing our programs to reach communities which have historically experienced a lack of resources to achieve adequate vision and eye health.

Our Programs and Services

 LVS currently accomplishes its mission in five ways: 

1. Preempt blindness and visual impediments by screening and educating vulnerable demographics;

2. Provide need-based financial assistance and in-kind services for eye surgeries; 

3. Procure hearing aids for individuals unable to afford them; 

4. Promote education in the prevention of blindness across South Carolina; and 

5. Facilitate the recognition and volunteer involvement of Lions serving South Carolina residents.
