Lions Vision Research Foundation

In May 1988, delegates to the 66th Multiple District 22 Lions Convention approved the establishment of the Lions Vision Research Foundation.

Major causes of low vision are macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and inherited eye diseases. Five million people in the United States suffer from low vision; 25 million people are impacted worldwide. Dr. Massof proposed further that the Lions create a $4 million endowment fund to guarantee the Lions Vision Center would operate in perpetuity.
