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.

Success Stories

 

Kamlesh and Nandlal are brothers. Kamlesh is 10 years old and Nandlal is just seven years old. They live in a small house with their grandfather, mother and three other siblings in a village in India’s Udaipur district.

At a young age, both boys had severe visual impairment, to the point that they would often fall, bump into things and into other people! The poor brothers couldn’t concentrate at school because they couldn’t see the board, and after a while they didn’t even want to go to school anymore. Click here to read their story.

News, events and more

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.
