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!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Obtaining greater local community links.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

promote more advertising.
