SAVE SIGHT, CHANGE LIVES, AND BUILD A BRIGHTER, SAFER FUTURE.
39 Million people around the world are blind, and over 285 Million people are severely vision impaired.
2.2 billion people struggle with near vision and need reading glasses – that is more than 1 in 4 people.
Without proper care, millions will continue to live without the gift of sight, even though 75% of all blindness can be cured or treated.
EYE CARE CAMPS
We’re working across the World to bring the gift of sight to people in impoverished communities who have been living in the dark for far too long. Many people living in poverty with vision problems never get the treatment they need for clearer vision, even when it’s something as simple as receiving a pair of glasses, or if they require a life-changing but simple cataracts surgery. Blindness can be isolating and leave people excluded from society, as well as struggling to cope financially.
Our eye care program is changing thousands of lives around the world by making eye care a priority. Our eye camps and the treatments they provide are making it easier for the elderly to live with dignity, children to continue with their educations, parents to provide for their families, and people everywhere to come together and take part in their communities.
