We work with a statewide network to provide vision screenings, eye exams, eyeglasses, eye surgeries, and hearing aids to over 7,000 Georgia residents each year.

Our Mission

The Georgia Lions Lighthouse Foundation provides vision and hearing services through education, detection, prevention, and treatment. Through collaborative partnerships, we enable greater independence and increased quality of life for Georgians in financial need.

Our Vision

Building a better tomorrow by bringing individuals into a world of sight and sound.

About the Lighthouse

The Lighthouse was the dream of a blind man, Atlanta Lions Club member Tom Bingham. In 1949, the Atlanta Lions Club led by Bingham, along with Moultrie and Albany Lions, each contributed $1,000, and the Lighthouse was born. Since then, Lions Clubs have served as the cornerstone of the organization and maintain a vital role in the growth and reach of our mission: to create a better Georgia by bringing individuals into a world of sight and sound. Together we continue to set the standard for service and equal access vision and hearing care for Georgians in need.

In the last year, we have served more people than ever before, providing vision and hearing care to over 7,000 people of all ages. With the help of our collaborative network of partners throughout the state, we are committed to meet a growing need for comprehensive vision and hearing care throughout the state.
