Houston-More than 400 guests attended the Houston “Eye Ball” on Feb. 10. Proceeds will benefit the Houston Eye Associates Foundation and Prevent Blindness Texas, both non-profit organizations dedicated to meeting the critical eye-care needs of the less fortunate.

The event honored Houston icons Rosanette and Harry Cullen, who represented the local philanthropic community.

The Houston Eye Associates Foundation provides surgical eye-care services at no cost through partnerships with ophthalmologists who donate their office time and surgical services. The foundation was established 30 years ago by Houston Eye Associates physicians.

Founded in 1956, Prevent Blindness Texas is a volunteer eye health and safety organization dedicated to fighting blindness and saving sight through public and professional education, advocacy, community and patient service programs, and research.

Both the Houston Eye Associates Foundation and Prevent Blindness Texas help individuals who fall within a gap for health care coverage and have nowhere else to meet their medical vision needs. The organizations are committed to preserving and restoring sight as a means for individuals to regain independence and self-sufficiency.
