Lions in Sight has been endorsed by Lions Multiple District 4 since 1991. Its four Charter Objectives are:
- To serve as Lions Clubs International eyeglasses collection center for the western United States.
- To provide clinic trips to developing nations to prescribe recycled eyeglasses to those in need.
- To provide used eyeglasses on request to Lions clubs worldwide and ensure the eyeglasses are appropriately prescribed and distributed.
- To expand the capability of Lions in Lions Multiple District 4 to provide free primary eye care to those in need within their districts.
The foundation conducts 12 missions per year, several to Mexico and the rest to other developing nations. Lions in Sight has created several permanent clinics: five in Peru, four in the Republic of Sri Lanka and nine in Mexico. The permanent clinics are run by area Lions. Local doctors volunteer their time and Lions in Sight provides equipment and training to the local members to fit eyeglasses according to the doctor's prescription.
