This Holiday Season Give Good...Give the Gift of Sight

Cataracts Can Affect Anyone.

Two-year-old Sufiyan couldn’t even recognize his parents when cataracts stole his vision.

Untreated cataracts are by far the leading cause of blindness throughout the world.

More than 20 million people around the world are blind today due to untreated cataracts — simply because they lack access to proper care. Despite the fact that cataract surgery is an effective intervention, in many remote and poor areas of the developing world people remain blind from cataracts due to the lack of access to qualified cataract surgeons. The global health crisis of cataract blindness is expected to significantly increase over the next 20 years.

More Information About the Surgery:

A quick, effective, and low-cost surgery called Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery (MSICS) can restore sight to someone suffering from cataract blindness … and can take as little as 5 minutes to perform.

MSICS involves removing a defective lens in the eye — which causes the blindness — and replacing it with an artificial lens specifically chosen for the patient.
