WHY WE NEED A CONSOLIDATED EFFORT

80%

of what a child learns is processed through the visual system.

90%

of the world's vision impaired are located in developing nations, where services are limited.

80%

of all vision impairment is preventable or curable.

63%

of vision impairment in the 0 -15 age group is due to refractive error.

 

POSSIBILITY

What does a child see for their future? Moonwalks, sold out stadiums, the presidency? The most striking part of any child’s dream is their ambition. But the key to all those ambitions is a good education, and getting a good education is difficult without good eyesight.

As Professor Holden said, “Every seven year old, when going to school, should take along a certificate from their optometrist saying, ‘I’ve had my eyes examined, I’m ok I can see.’”

Children should not be limited by a preventable or treatable vision impairment.  Join our movement - vision for every child…everywhere.

Why vision?
