Louisiana Lions Eye Foundation - The Louisiana Lions Eye Foundation (LLEF) is the Lions organization within the State of Louisiana that carries out the Lions Club mission as "Knights of Blind".  The Foundation offers many services to the public free of charge.  Some of the many services offered include eye exams, surgeries, corrective eye treatments, eyeglass recycling, research and education.  Visit their site to see all of the services offered by the foundation, and to get a better idea of why we raise money for their great work.

Louisiana Lions Camp - One of the Lions' most famous projects.  Located in Leesville, LA the Lions Camp provides one-week camps free of charge to children who face mental and physical challenges, diabetes, and pulmonary disorders.  This modern camp is specially equipped to provide a great outdoor experience for these children, despite the difficult challenges they face.

CubSight Program - The CubSight program is the Lions' effort to provide early screening of children's eyes.  These early screenings can determine if a child has a condition that may lead to amblyopia, commonly referred to as Lazy Eye, or any other eye diseases. Through accurate interpretation of the screening results, CubSight can help prevent blindness in these children with early detection and appropriate care.
