Dear Dr. Nasser,

I would like to share a personal story with all Vision Source doctors that I had with Dr. Moes Nasser during the launch of the Lake Zone Roshanali Nasser Outreach Project in Tanzania. It reflects the impact we can have when we show compassion in helping others.

“I am a human being!” said Sosteneis in his native Swahili. He is the older man beaming above and he said this as Moes fitted him for his first pair of glasses. I must tell you, it brought tears to my eyes. We not only helped this man to regain his sight, but also his dignity and hope.

All those pictured above and more were given the Gift of Vision just last week during the launch of an outreach project supported by Optometry Giving Sight. Over 2,000 individuals received eye exams over the course of several days. Many had never seen an optometrist, including children, teachers, parents, farmers and villagers who accessed vision care for the first time in their lives.

In Moes own words, “This was my 10th year providing eye care in Tanzania, my native home, and it was very special. This new project, named after my late father, filled me with emotions. He was passionate about Tanzania, particularly this region. My goal is to institutionalize this project. I would like to thank the many supporters and well-wishers, especially Optometry Giving Sight for making this happen.”

This was all made possible thanks to people like you who support Optometry Giving Sight and help bring access to vision care where none existed before.

Every $5 of your contribution will Give Sight and Hope to someone who is desperately in need. Everyone wants to be able to see. Everyone deserves to see. Everyone should feel like a human being.

Please make your contribution to the World Sight Day Challenge today to support others in need like Sosteneis in Tanzania!

The well-being and safety of our patients are and always have been our highest priority.

Governor Abbott’s executive order is ending the statewide COVID restrictions and mask mandates, but Vision Centers of Houston will continue to require face masks and practice social distancing while in our clinic. As a healthcare entity, we must follow the guidelines set forth by the CDC.

We are asking you to continue masking. We know that it works. It protects our doctor, staff, and YOU. There are infectious variants are circulating in Texas, and many more people wait to be vaccinated.

Let’s do everything we can to protect each other.

We truly appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding in our desire to protect our at-risk patient population.

We will look to the CDC and their recommendations as we move forward.


COVID-19 Mask Mandate: Our offices will continue requiring our patients and teams to abide by the mask mandate.
