WANG FOUNDATION FOR SIGHT RE...

Giving The Gift of Sight

Providing Sight Restoration For The Needy Around The World.

In 2003, we founded the 501(c)3 non-profit sight foundation to help indigent patients undergo advanced sight restoration surgeries free-of-charge. We felt that a physician- and civilian-organized, grassroots effort is our best option in helping to provide medical care (in this case, eye care) for the poor, while at the same time avoiding more governmental control and bureaucracy. The premise of our foundation is very simple:  Many people, including doctors, do want to help but they need to know how to help; and therefore, a structure was needed to make it possible for them to be able to volunteer and contribute.

People have different ways of helping depending on their own specific areas of knowledge, expertise and available resources, so the key here is to creatively build this structure--an organization with vision (no pun intended)--so that the doctors can productively be engaged and united to channel their energies and resources toward the common goal of providing free medical care for the poor, and in doing so, reduce the financial burden on our nation’s healthcare.
