News - Our sight programs have changed the lives of millions

There may be many, but each person who has had their sight restored or improved has a story to tell a story of living with frustration, fear or helplessness, then having that unexpected moment of seeing the world through their own eyes, and going on to embrace a new life with vision.

Being able to help people in this way is unforgettable, and is often the result of a simple operation or gift of eyeglasses. At an average of just US$6 to restore someone’s sight, giving a man back his independence, enabling a child see the chalkboard at school or allowing a grandmother to see her grandchild for the first time, is priceless.
