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 80 percent of global blindness is treatable or preventable. In fact, more than half of the world's blindness is caused by cataracts, a condition that can be reversed with a 15-minute operation.

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?

To date, donors like you have helped provide:


sight-saving surgeries


pairs of life-changing glasses


clinician trainings for medical professionals specializing in cataract surgery, retina conditions, transplants, and more


women with training to become health volunteers in rural areas

“If we kicked smallpox, the greatest killer known to humankind, we can end all forms of needless blindness. We have the science, we are an organization that has also gained the wisdom, now let us ask for the resources to get it done.”

Dr. Larry Brilliant, Seva co-founder
