No person with a blinding condition, eye disease, or visual impairment should be without hope, understanding, and treatment.
There are 39 million blind individuals worldwide and 285 million with some form of visual impairment; 90 percent of them live in poverty in the developing world. A blind adult will only live two-thirds as long as sighted peers.
Four out of every five blind people could be cured at any modern eye clinic, but most lack access to care--sometime due to expense, but often because there are not enough doctors.
