giving back


Over the years, we have gone from serving in our communities in Tennessee to serving communities around the world. It has been our honor to serve in over 8 countries over the last 30 years. We look forward to continuing to serve those who need it most in the years to come.

Here are a few of the places we have gone to help:

Dr. Kapperman has travelled to Catacamas, Honduras for the last 18 years through Predisan Health Ministries, an organizanization with a mission of “Proclaiming Jesus, Healing Lives”. Dr. Kapperman currently serves on the Predisan Board of Directors. Dr. McGarvey, Dr. Kortum, and many staff members have accompanied the eye brigade on mission trips. The eyecare teams provide prescription eyewear and support for numerous eye health concerns to the people of the rural mountain regions of eastern Honduras.

Dr. White’s passion for serving international missions has led him to many parts of the globe, including Uganda, Brazil, Haiti, and most recently Ecuador. While on mission, he works with local pastors to identify communities in need of eye care. Dr. White’s work in Ecuador partnered with Far Flung Tin Can, an organization that focuses on building long-lasting relationships with ministers and teams globally to help expand their work.  Dr. White’s teams help spread the love of Jesus while caring for people’s eyes, health, and spiritual well-being.
