Detroit's population (637,601) is at greater risk of avoidable and treatable eye diseases and blindness due to the lack of access to affordable and accessible eye care services, awareness of eye health needs, costs, and transportation barriers. The mission of Eye Care For Detroit, Inc., (ECFD) is to provide access to high-quality and affordable eye care for Detroit's homebound community (approximately 40,000+ residents) and underserved populations.
* Greatly inspired by the findings of The Vision Detroit Project (2022).
