OUR HISTORY

I Care International is a Canadian registered charity that was started by Oakville optometrist, Dr. Sanjay Agarwal in April 2002. I Care International grew from the experience and dreams of people dedicated to helping others.

Our objective is to provide eye care services to less fortunate men, women, and children around the world. Typically, missions are performed in tandem with optometry students from the University of Waterloo during the university's reading week. The students are exposed to a lot of ocular pathology and ailments and consequently learn a lot in a short period of time. We have ventured to many countries including Mexico, Jamaica, Guatemala, Peru, and Chile and helped tens of thousands of people.

I Care International also has 2 sister branches in the USA ( www.icareinternational.org ) and Mexico. The American branch was created first in 1989 by Illinois optometrists, Dr. Philip Ortiz and the late Dr. Charles D. Cools. Many missions are a joint venture between cooperation of all three branches.
