Ever since Helen Keller inspired us to champion the cause in 1925, we’ve served and advocated for the blind and visually impaired. Nearly a century later, this long-standing mission continues unhindered.
253 million people are blind or have moderate to severe distance vision impairment (MSVI)
1.1 billion have near-vision impairment simply because they don’t have a pair of glasses
>75 of all blindness and MSVI is avoidable
89 of people with visual impairment live in developing countries
We Have a Plan We have a long history of serving the blind and visually impaired, and remain committed to continuing this mission into our next century of service.
Our Strategic Objective Prevent avoidable blindness and improve quality of life for people who are blind and visually impaired.
