Lighthouse for Christ Mission
More than 25,000 patients are seen each year at the Lighthouse for Christ Eye Centre and in Mobile Eye Camps. In 2013, nearly 1,600 eye surgeries were performed and nearly 3,500 set pairs of glasses were dispensed. Most of the patients are the unreached or followers of traditional tribal religions. Many would never darken the door of a church but are willing to listen to a gospel presentation which includes the Jesus film and a personal witness. This all occurs while patients wait for medical treatment along with family members. Volunteer ophthalmologists from the US and foreign countries serve 2-4 weeks throughout the year conducting medical treatment and care for: cataracts, cornea issues, pediatric issues, glaucoma, retina and other special medical issues. They also train three Kenyan eye doctors, equipping them with the latest techniques in surgery and diagnostics.
