ICA Pacific Circuit Rally - Give Sight Program

Sail with a greater purpose during the Pacific Circuit Rally!

Sea Mercy has empowered our Island Cruising Association's Pacific Circuit Rally members with the ability to "sail with a greater purpose" with their Give Sight program. With 5 nations and 20 ports of call on our agenda, we can change the lives of hundreds of people living there by giving them the gift of sight (near and farsighted glasses).


Imagine being able to give a student the ability to see the chalkboard in school, a fisherman the ability to see to tie his line to a hook, an artisan to once again see to paint, or a member of a church to once again read their Bible. Now you can! What we might take for granted, is a modern day miracle just waiting for you to make happen at every stop you make while sailing. What is even more amazing is that you don't have to be an Optometrist or Ophthalmologist to deliver these miracles. Sea Mercy's eye testing and evaluation program is easy to administer and anyone can learn to be an Eye Care Program Director (aka miracle worker).

Instant Results!

There are no long treatment regimes, shipping delays, or side effects with this incredible program. Within 5 minutes, you will have tested, prescribed and provided each patient with the correct pair of near-sighted or long-sighted glasses for them to use. As an Eye Care program director, it is hard to explain or measure the personal reward you receive as you watch the tears of joy and amazement, followed by hugs, smiles and handshakes as each person looks upon distant sights they have never seen or letters on a page that they have not been able to read for decades.

Because you are not doing any surgeries, prescribing any medicines, or charging any fees for the glasses or for your services, local governments are quick to embrace our eye care program for their "at risk" communities. With permission, you can setup an eye care testing event in schools, clinics, churches, government buildings, community centers, or whatever creative location you decide upon that meets the testing criteria. It is simple, fun and an incredible way to build immediate and lasting relationships at every stop you make.

Give Sight Participation Requirements

There are very few requirements to participate in the Give Sight Program. Our goal is to leave a positive lasting impression at each stop that you make. As a result, each kit comes in an easy to store carrying case that contains:

    Testing Charts (for testing close-up and distance vision)
    120 Reading Glasses with strengths ranging from +1.25 to +3.5 - (cost = $145)
    Patient Tracking Sheet (Sea Mercy data collection and tracking of eye glass distribution)
    Testing and Training Reference Manual (PDF file for easy Q&A and reference needs)
    Shipping & Handling Cost = based on location

Sea Mercy's works with Eyejusters self-adjustable glasses for long- and nearsightedness needs (large discount)

Sea Mercy works with Eyejusters, manufacturer of glasses with self-adjustable lenses. Eyejusters is a pair of glasses that any user can simply adjust to their own vision needs in seconds. Instant clear vision, without needing customized lenses. They can turn two hidden dials tucked behind the frame, and see the world come into focus. It’s a ‘wow’ moment! Eyejusters SlideLensTM technology allows for normal frame styles and materials, suitable for individuals around the world. The range includes glasses for correcting distance vision (negative power lenses for nearsightedness) and for near vision (positive power lenses for farsightedness), covering up to 90% of typical lens requirements.

A single pair of glasses can make a huge difference to an individual. Uncorrected vision limits a person's ability to earn a living, impairs access to education, reduces personal safety and restricts social interactions. With self-adjustable glasses, that impact can be multiplied to other members of the family or colleagues, as the lenses can be re-adjusted by each user. In addition, vision correction needs change over time. Instead of returning to an eye care professional every time, Eyejusters can keep adapting without the need to buy a new pair of glasses. This is especially important for people living on the remote islands that you might visit during your cruising time.
