HERE'S HOW

Vision = Freedom

Almost 90 percent of people affected with vision impairment live in developing countries, where not being able to see often means a life of poverty – or worse. It's nearly impossible to work, to feed yourself, or to meet your basic needs when you can't see.

Yet most vision impairment can be prevented or cured. In fact, more than half of the world's blindness is caused by cataracts, a condition that can be reversed with a 15-minute surgery.

The Ripple Effect

When you give someone the gift of sight, you're not just helping one person to see again; you're supporting an entire community. When one person regains sight, the rest of that person's family can concentrate on work, school, improving their home lives, and helping others in need.

A Gift of Sight:


Breaks the cycle of poverty


Builds brighter futures through new opportunities for education


Leads to improved health


Transforms the future for the person who was visually impaired and his or her caretaker

Where Does the Money Go?

355,639

pairs of life-changing glasses for children
