Our eye care clinic, Ojos Del Mar, has teamed up with CEPIA, a highly respected Costa Rican Nonprofit, to provide 100% free eye care and prescription eyewear to Costa Rican children and their families in need of support.
At our Feria De Salud events, we not only donate hundreds of pairs of glasses, but we volunteer our time, supplies, and existing equipment on hand to ensure we’re able to help as many kids and families as possible to see their world clearly and comfortably again; whether that be the chalkboard so they can succeed in school, or the oncoming headlights so they can walk or drive their children safely back home.
Your contributions will be put directly towards the material purchases of prescription lenses and field equipment which will allow our doctors to properly assess patient prescriptions and diagnoses of problems.
Here are a few photos from our most recent event where we provided +150 free eye exams and 77 pair of prescription glasses!

In other words, they’re Tom’s Shoes of Eyecare and Eyewear.
