Serving the Residents of Louisiana and Beyond

The Louisiana Lions Eye Foundation sponsors programs designed to help meet vision and hearing related needs of people in our state and to assist others worldwide. However, our primary focus is on the eye and ear health of the people of Louisiana.

As a nonprofit, we depend on donations and various fundraising events, such as raffles and bingo games, to support our programs. We also host several charity events to create awareness, encourage participation and inspire continued donations.
