ABOUT US:

Mission Vision is a 501 (c)3, non-profit organization that delivers free eye exams, custom eyeglasses, and other essential supplies directly to homeless, uninsured, working poor, and low-fixed income people in Western Pennsylvania and abroad. Our Vision of Hope program conducts free eye care clinics on site at crisis shelters, soup kitchens, food pantries, and sliding-fee medical clinics, where many in the demographic targeted by Mission Vision are already getting their primary needs for food and shelter met.

HOW YOU CAN HELP:

One Powerful way to help is to lift Mission Vision and our many faithful supporters in consistent prayer.  We firmly believe that the One who supplies all our need, can and will provide everything we require to accomplish His purposes.  If you have unused glasses, they can always be donated to Mission Vision. You also are able to volunteer your time to work a clinic. These events are typically scheduled on Saturdays from 9am-2pm. Even if you have no hands-on experience working with eyeglasses, we will train you how to sort, bench adjust, check eyeglass prescriptions, and perform minor repairs on glasses. If you are a church group or business, we have sponsorship opportunities! Please call 412-303-7687 now to ask for a sponsorship packet for your family, church, or charitable hearted business.

All of us at Mission Vision wish to acknowledge and express heart-felt appreciation to our many, faithful supporters.  Whether you donated your time, money, supplies or prayers, please know that God has used you to make a significant difference in the lives of thousands of souls in Pittsburgh and abroad. May God richly bless you!

Vitamin C and Your Eyes

vitamin-C

Vitamin C:

Vitamin C helps the body have healthy bones, skin, and blood vessels. It also helps the body form and maintain connective tissue found in the cornea of the eye. The recommended daily consumption for Vitamin C is 90mg for men and 75mg for women per day. Citrus fruits and many vegetables are excellent sources of Vitamin C. With all that we know about Vitamin C, it is not as well known that Vitamin C is also good for your eyes.

Vitamin C and Your Eyes:

Not only does Vitamin C help form and maintain connective tissue in the cornea, it also helps reduce the risk of cataracts. A healthy supply of Vitamin C can also reduce vision loss from macular degeneration. Some easy sources of Vitamin C are of course Oranges and Orange Juice, but what about other kinds? Orang Juice does have the daily recommended amount for women (75mg), but sweet red peppers have the most with 283mg. You can also eat sweet green peppers (133)mg, Strawberries (86mg) and Broccoli (82mg). Of course, these aren’t the only consumables that provide a sufficient amount of Vitamin C., there are plenty of things out there for you.

If you have any questions or inquiries, please contact us at Scott & Christie Eyecare Associates at either our Cranberry or Pittsburgh location.

Flashes and Floaters

FLOATERS:

Floaters are very common and usually are harmless. Floaters are tiny spots that drift around in your field of vision. Eye floaters come in various shapes and sizes,  They are caused by a break down of the vitreous which is a gel-like part of the eye located in between the lens and Flashes and floaters
the retina. Then these broken down pieces of the vitreous are the floaters. Seeing floaters from time to time is not a concern, but if you see a shower of floaters as well as flashes of light, you should immediately seek medical attention. Here at Scott and Christie Eyecare Associates, our doctorcs take every case of floaters they see seriously to  make sure that you and your loved ones get the best care possible. Visit our contact us page to schedule an appointment. Scott and Christie Eyecare Associates is located in Pittsburgh and Cranberry.

FLASHES:

Usually, light enters the eye and stimulates the retina. This produces an electric impulse, which the optic nerve transmits to the brain. The brain then interprets this impulse as light or some type of image. When this occurs it is known as Flashes. Sometimes these flashes can appear as lines that last up to 20 minutes. Flashes (photopsias) also may occur after a blow to the head that is capable of shaking the vitreous gel inside the eye. When this occurs, the phenomenon sometimes is called “seeing stars.” If a headache follows the flashes, it is called a migraine headache. Here at Scott and Christie Eyecare Associates, our doctorcs take every case of flashes they see seriously to  make sure that you and your loved ones get the best care possible.
