What is it like for someone living with cataracts?


Before: Untreated cataracts lead to severe visual impairment and blindness.
After: A 5 minute procedure can restore a patient’s sight.

 

For millions around the world, this is their everyday reality.

  • Over 20 million people are bilaterally blind because of cataracts.

  • 82 million more are visually impaired by cataracts.

  • 90% of those cataract blind or visually impaired live in developing countries.

But it doesn't need to be this way - vision lost to a cataract can be fully restored.

We have the solutions to end this global health crisis. Now we need help from YOU!
