Sight is the most treasured of our five senses. We see the world and its myriad of colors and shapes through the windows of our eyes. We learn with them. We laugh with them. We communicate with them. We provide for our families with them. We see our loved ones with them.
Sight can make the difference between a life of poverty and a life of opportunity.
Over 600 million people are blind or vision impaired simply because they cannot get the glasses they need. Optometry Giving Sight funds the solution - an eye exam and a pair of glasses. Delivered through sustainable primary eye care programs, we can give sight to millions in need.
