HelpMeSee is committed to eliminating cataract blindness, the leading cause of blindness worldwide. Through partnerships with hundreds of surgeons in nearly a dozen countries, along with cutting-edge technology and training, we are building a sustainable solution to this health crisis.
We need you to make this solution work and together we can make a bigger impact! With your generous support, we can provide training to cataract specialists to perform high volume and high quality cataract surgeries to millions of blind people. Together, we can bring sight back to people across the world every day.
You can give someone the chance to see the world again.
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!
