Help Restore The Gift of Sight to all persons on the planet regardless of their location or skin color!

Approximately 1 Billion people in developing countries are currently on the road to avoidable blindness because of poverty or lack of access to affordable care, but you can help change that. 

 

Our work with trusted local partners helps restore the gift of sight to the impoverished in developing countries 

100 percent of public donations have gone directly to the cause since our humble beginning in 2021.

Cataracts are caused by a build-up of protein that clouds the eye’s lens, which can lead to blurred vision and eventual blindness.

What are refractive errors?

Refractive errors are eye disorders caused by eye shape irregularity. This makes it difficult for the eyes to focus on images.
