Based in Bloomfield Hills, MI, The Vision Specialists Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization operating under EIN #81-1413204. Our mission, which is is 100% privately funded through donations, is two-fold:
- To help those with financial needs who desperately need care to improve their quality of life
- To provide funding for research and educational programs that will help others recognize and understand Binocular Vision Dysfunction (BVD)
It is through education that we hope to eliminate hurdles that block proper diagnosis and treatment for millions of Americans each year (including hundreds of thousands of veterans).
Our founders created VSF as a vehicle for grateful patients of Vision Specialists of Michigan to help others access the same treatments that had changed their own lives. Thanks to the generosity of these other donors, VSF has provided compassionate care for over 150 individuals and has funded several research studies to advance the understanding of BVD and the impact of micro-prism glasses (studies available here).
