Volunteer Ophthalmic Services Overseas (VOSO) is an New Zealand charitable trust that provides FREE eye aid to the Pacific.
This completely voluntary based service has been supported for over 30 years by optometrists and ophthalmologists alike
VOSO plays an important role in helping restore sight to those less fortunate in the Pacific Islands through sight saving surgery and surgical supplies, and the distribution of thousands of pairs of glasses and sunglasses every year.
None of our volunteers or trustees receive any payment for their services.
The glasses and sunglasses are either donated by generous New Zealand wholesalers and optical suppliers, or processed by the Lions Clubs throughout New Zealand.
