Washington Eye Foundation (WEF)

The Washington Eye Foundation was formed to support the charitable, educational, and scientific activities of WAEPS through its activities, which may include:

•    Creating and distributing public service announcements regarding eye and vision care.
•    Arranging for free Glaucoma screenings to individuals who are unable to afford such screenings.
•    Developing and conducting education programs for members of WAEPS and the public.
•    Arranging for free vision screenings for children whose families are unable to afford such screenings.
•    Creating educational materials for use by WAEPS’ members.
•    Conducting charitable events supporting eye research or disease research related to conditions that may affect the eyes.
•    Funding scientific research into ophthalmic diseases.
•    Engaging with medical students and residents regarding WAEPS and eye and vision care.
•    Connecting patients in need of care to local ophthalmologists. 
•    Making grants to WAEPS to support WAEPS’ charitable, educational, and scientific purposes.

The WEF supports our new Pop-Up Clinics to ensure eye health in underserved areas of Eastern Washington. Pop Up Clinics are coordinated throughout rural Washington in partnership with Washington State University's Medical School and the non-profit entity, Range Health.  We are excited to partner with them and travel with their mobile primary care van to visit patients.  A volunteer WAEPS physician would partner with the primary care team and WSU medical students to deliver complete ophthalmologic exams including refraction and dilation to patients that are underinsured or not insured in these counties.  If you would like to make donation to support the Pop-Up Clinic through WEF, please note that on your donation.
