The most effective way to save sight. Through awareness, education, screening, vitamin supplementation and more, we prevent sight loss before it begins.

Eyeglasses

Eyeglasses

A simple eye exam and a pair of new, prescription eyeglasses can restore sight. The sale of eyeglasses to customers able to pay helps provide eyeglasses to those who can’t afford them.

Clean Water

Clean Water

Poor sanitation allows diseases like sight-stealing trachoma to spread rapidly. Through the provision of clean water, we’re saving sight in countries like Zambia and Kenya.

Sightlines Spring 2018 issue released

Read it here

We have a reliable report that there’s at least one person in the Edmonton area canvassing door-to-door, claiming to be from Operation Eyesight. There may be other cities involved.

We’d like the public to know this is a scam. Operation Eyesight does NOT currently have door-to-door campaigns happening. If someone comes to your door claiming to be canvassing for Operation Eyesight (or for ANY charity), be sure to ask them for documentation, or call the charity directly to ask for confirmation.
