Lifetime Achievement Award

VOSH International presented Greg_2015Dr. Greg Pearl with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Dr. Pearl is one of the founders of VOSH California. Since 1988 he has been an advocate for providing eye care to those in need throughout the world.  Besides conducting VOSH clinics to El Salvador each Thanksgiving week, he volunteers his time to the Saban Free Clinic in Los Angeles every Monday. His goal is to help provide sustainable eye care solutions in countries where the most need is.

Dr. Pearl helped to start the first Optometry school in Nicaragua. Also, the optometry school in Tijuana Mexico did not have any ophthalmic equipment or clinical rooms where the students could get hands-on training and practice. Dr. Pearl saw this need and helped to get the school what they needed. Dr. Pearl and his staff participate each year in the the program Optometry Give Sight. We are very proud of Dr. Pearl and his dedication to the under served population.
