Our mission is to continually strive to develop and focus on new treatments, technologies, eye research, and educational opportunities for our educators, physicians and communities in order to provide the very best patient care for the people of NY and our neighbors in New England.

The Lions Have a Proud Tradition of Giving.

For over 80 years, Lions worldwide have demonstrated a commitment to aid the blind and to support those with serious eye problems. Nowhere is that commitment more evident than in New York State.

Over the past two decades especially, the approximately 5,000 Lions and Lionesses, representing 160 Lions clubs from Districts 20-O, 20-Y2 and 20-W, have worked together to establish an unmatched regional resource of excellence for people with sight problems-the Lions Eye Institute.
