The word photography means to “write with light.” The human eye, like a camera, needs light to create images, our lens to the world. Join us for a very special exhibit chronicling Seva Foundation’s 4th decade of restoring vision.

From eye-care facilities in the high mountains of Asia, to training programs for eye specialists in the desert Southwest of America, Seva has developed global initiatives that have restored vision to 4 million people and counting.

The Vision in Focus exhibit features photography throughout the decades of Seva’s work from: Rebecca Gaal, Joe Raffanti, Julie Nestingen, Ellen Crystal, and Jon Kaplan, Vision in Focus illuminates the lives of those directly affected by sight restoration and explores how vision provides opportunities to individuals, caregivers, and entire communities.

This is a unique opportunity to learn about the issue of blindness and it’s far-reaching implications. The World Bank rates cataract surgery as one of the most cost-effective health innovations for reducing poverty. Learn how with basic eye care, more than 230 million people can see again and join the conversation about how to help solve the issue of curable blindness.
