Prevention

Prevention

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.

Eye surgery

We’d like the public to know this is a scam. Operation Eyesight does NOT currently have door-to-door campaigns happening.
