The District 49A Joint Sight Committee is composed of Lion members from Anchorage, Eagle River and Chugiak area.
The purpose of the committee is to:
- provide glasses to the needy, as determined by the committee, particularly children of school age;
- provide assistance for the visually impaired;
- cooperate with other organizations interested in sight conservation; and
- further legislation for the visually impaired in District 49A.
What this means for you
If you are in need of a pair of eyeglasses and financially unable to purchase them yourself, the Lions Joint Sight Committee may be able to help you financially. The amount provided for the cost of eye exams, single vision glasses, bifocal and trifocal glasses are subject to approval of the committee after all criteria are met.
The following have partnered with us for years in providing eye care for those that cannot afford it. Thank them when you see them.
