Blindness Prevention

Blindness Prevention

  • Blindness Prevention
Eye Screenings and Surgeries—We emphasize early detection and treatment of eye problems in children through our public awareness campaign. Eye glasses are provided where needed and/or referrals are made for follow up. Adult eye screening is done case by case through our partner hospitals and RBI eye surgery missions. If eye disease is detected, our partner ophthalmologists examine and treat people of all ages.

The number one cause of preventable blindness in the world is cataracts. Every year, RBI performs between two and three thousand cataract surgeries. By making use of donated medicines and volunteer doctors, we have been able to reduce our actual costs to about $20 per eye surgery. Please consider helping give the gift of sight. Visit our Donate page if you would like to help.
