SEE International provides sustainable medical, surgical, and educational services through volunteer ophthalmic surgeons with the objective of restoring sight and prventing blindness to disadvantaged individuals worldwide. It has successfully performed more than 400,00- sight-restoring surgeries since its founding in 1974 by Harry S. Brown, M.D., FACS.

In addition to working globally in developing countries, SEE International also has a program in Santa Barbara. Established in the late 1980s, SBVCP responds to the need of a substantial population in Santa Barbara County who live and work in the community and cannot afford basic medical care—including vision care—for themselves and their families. SBVCP provides comprehensive eye exams, eyeglasses, medications, and eye surgery at no cost to qualified patients who reside in Santa Barbara county. The SBVCP also collaborates with the Shepard Eye Center and the Kendall-Shepard Eye Center in Santa Maria and Lompoc, respectively.
