It’s a non-profit committed to making sure people have access to vision services, regardless of cost. Thirty-four optometrists and ophthalmologists in the community are volunteering their services.

“With everyone’s insurance-changes and difficulties with deductibles and co-pays, some families have a very hard time getting to the doctor even though they’re insured,” said Dr. Sergul Erzurum. “So hopefully Sight For All will be able to help with some of that as well.”
Sight for All is opening its office doors Monday morning. It’s inside the Goodwill office on Belmont Avenue in Liberty.
