Houston Eye Associates Foundation is committed to preserving and restoring sight with comprehensive eye care surgeries, medications and ancillary services for individuals in financial hardship, and supporting education and research initiatives for the benefit of the community.

Physicians from Houston Eye Associates, other local ophthalmology practices and partnering medical professionals donate their office time and surgical skills; and Houston Eye Associates Foundation pays for hospital or surgery facilities fees, vision-saving medications, medically necessary lenses, eye glasses, cornea tissue, laboratory services, prosthetics and other ancillary services.


In 1981. Physicians from the Houston Eye Associates formed the Houston Eye Associates Foundation (HEA Foundation) in efforts to meet the surgical and medical eye care needs within the community for adults and children that fell into the cracks of the healthcare system. They had the belief that everyone should be provided with the most scientifically advanced medical eye care.

The HEA Foundation is supported solely by the generous charitable donations from individuals, grateful patients, private foundations, corporate matching gifts and two annual fundraising events. The Houston Eye Associates Foundation does not receive government or third-party funding of any other kind.
