More than 85 million people are visually impaired worldwide - and they don't have to be. Globally, cataracts are the second leading cause of visual impairment. And they are the leading cause of preventable blindness in developing countries.
People with cataract impairment don't have to walk through life with hazy eye sight. Ophthalmologists can restore sight with an out-patient procedure that often takes less than 30 minutes. But too often patients don't have access to care, or the ability to afford the procedure. Help us change this!
