Who We Are


Forty years ago the Lions Club established an eye clinic at the Sacred Heart Hospital in Allentown, PA which helped served thousands of patients, the majority of them poor and most of them without medical insurance, unfortunately the eye clinic closed in 2016, now these patients don’t have a place to go to for eye care. Dr Julio Rojas who is a board certified ophthalmologist has decided to start a campaign to open this most needed eye clinic, we need to update the equipment as well hire two more ophthalmologist to help serve these patients, please help Dr. Rojas achieve this goal!
