Holland Kendall just wants to help homeless people see better. The Kentucky Board of Optometric Examiners and the Kentucky Board of Ophthalmic Dispensers say his philanthropy is illegal. Holland started a ministry that dispenses used eyeglasses to the poor back in 2003. A person’s vision is measured, and then a computer program determines which glasses that have been donated to the ministry have a matching prescription. But state officials sent Kendall a letter saying “It would be a violation of law if eyeglasses provided are not new, first quality and made to meet the individual’s personal prescriptions.”
