THE MIAMI LIGHTHOUSE FOR THE BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED INC
November 16, 2012

I came to Miami Lighthouse through my role as a optometrist and a founding member of the Heiken Childrens Vision Fund. The Miami Dade Optometric Association established this fund in 1992 to provide free eye exams and necessary eyeglasses to financially disadvantaged children attending Miami Dade Public Schools who failed their state-mandated vision screenings and had no way to receive eye care. In 2007, we merged with Miami Lighthouse to insure our program would continue to serve needy children in Greater Miami. This successful merger has allowed the program to now serve over 40 counties throughout Florida. Over 100,000 children have received free eye care as a result of this marvelous merger that improves individual school performance, learning, and self-esteem. I am very proud of the entire team at Miami Lighthouse and proud to be a member of the Board of Directors for the last 5 years. This is a very efficient nationally recognized charity that deserves strong support. Alan Levitt,OD
