This has to be the most friendliest non-profit organization I have ever worked at. The members of staff are entirely knowledgeable in their roles (and beyond) and the organization as a whole operates in an extremely efficient manner. Well done, New Eyes, for doing such a great job for helping others receive the precious gift of good sight!
