Light Without Borders
Light Without Borders is an NGO that provides free optometry and ophthalmic services and prescription glasses to refugees in Lesvos, Greece.
Many refugees have problems with their vision. They may have lost their glasses during their journey or have never had access to adequate eye care and cannot see well or risk losing their sight.
Light Without Borders operates an eye clinic in Moria refugee camp, where visiting volunteer optometrists and ophthalmologists offer professional eye examinations and dispense prescription glasses
Patients requiring more advanced treatments are treated by a local Greek ophthalmologist, Dr. Marselos Rallidis
We provide correctly specified glasses to patients free of charge. These are from our stock of donated glasses or especially made.
With your donations and volunteer support, since 2016 we have been able to help more than two thousand refugees in Lesvos with eye tests and prescription glasses
Our mission is to provide professional eye care and comfort to people who have suffered conflict, poverty, or forced to flee their homes.
