Blindness and Vision Impairment -Article from WHO

These are the facts:
1. More than two billion people suffer from a vision impairment or blindness.
2. Half the people (one billion) have a vision affliction that could have been prevented or has yet to be evaluated.
3. The principal causes of vision impairment are:
a. Uncorrected Refractive Errors (need for glasses)
b. Cataracts
*Both conditions are not difficult to solve if the person is able to access the appropriate care, yet the statistics are showing billions of people do not have access to it.

Restore Sight Inc. is just one of the many, many organizations that are trying to change the statistics.
We visit countries with very high incidence of vision impairment and low access to medical care.

If you would like to help make a difference, please donate to any and all the organizations working to defeat vision impairment and restore sight. 👁🌎
