Our Mission: The Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation provides vision services through education, detection, prevention, treatment and empowerment. Through collaborative partnerships, we enable greater independence and increased quality of life for all Kentuckians while focusing on children and adults in financial need. Our Motto: Your Vision is Our Mission. Our Core Values: In pursuing our mission and vision through vision services, we value and strive for greater integrity, respect, stewardship, leadership, diversity, collaboration and effectiveness.
The Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation was founded in 1954 by the Louisville Downtown Lions Club and has been governed by the Lions of Kentucky since it's inception. With nearly 350,000 Kentuckians who are uninsured and many more who are under-insured when it comes to vision, the Kentucky Lions Eye Foundation's services are in need more than ever. We are committed to filling the gaps that exist for many Kentuckians by providing affordable access to vision services. Our reach extends across the Commonwealth.
