Dr. James Barad, MD, an ophthalmologist in Colorado Springs, Colorado, realized early in his career that the need for charitable ophthalmic care was greater than local service organizations could provide. As a result, Dr. Barad envisioned EverythingForSight.org.
EverythingForSight.org partnered with the physician-owners of Pinnacle Eye Center in 2013. Currently, the majority of EverythingForSight-sponsored medical and surgical care is performed in that facility. Qualified individuals, both medical and administrative, volunteer their time and expertise to assist our providers.
The generosity of committed donors, like YOU, has allowed us to preserve and restore vision to thousands of patients.
Anyone in need of eye care is a potential recipient of the services we provide. We believe that no person should be denied care due to an inability to pay for treatment and/or the expenses directly related to their treatment (i.e. transportation, housing, medications, etc.)
Prior to receiving assistance, the complexity, urgency, and extent of a patient’s needs, as well as their current financial situation, are carefully reviewed. The level of support EverythingForSight.org provides is based on the results of this analysis.
Since 2010, generous donors have enabled EverythingForSight.org to help thousands of people. Compassionate giving not only improves the eyesight and quality of life for many, it also deeply influences the hearts and minds of donors and volunteers.
