About Our Chapter VOSH-Virginia

Volunteer Optometric Service to Humanity (VOSH)-Virginia provides volunteer no-cost quality eye care and glasses to those in need in Virginia and across the world. We seek to make the gift of sight available for all people local and distant. This, in turn, aids people in obtaining education and employment and improves their safety and quality of life.

VOSH-Virginia has provided eye care across Virginia since 1999. Its members have volunteered in Mexico, Honduras, Nicaragua, Peru, and Guatemala. 

The Virginia Chapter of VOSH was founded by Dr. Victoria Molnar Weiss in 2002 under the inspiration of Dr. Harry Zeltzer, Past President and Executive Director of VOSH/International.

What We Do

Vision means health, income and
education – especially for women and kids.

VOSH/International and VOSH Chapters are volunteers. That means that those who come on a clinic trip take time away from their jobs and families, pay their own expenses, including airfare and lodging, as well as other expenses. It is what makes VOSH VOSH! We are proud of that.

Our volunteers are licensed optometrists, opticians, health care providers and lay people. There are clinic trips both domestically as well as internationally, in over 30 countries, serving hundreds of thousands of patients.
