Our mission: to Prevent Blindness and Preserve Sight
Program Description

Focused on promoting a continuum of vision care, Prevent Blindness America touches the lives of millions of people each year.

  • We screen. We check the eyes of millions of children and adults each year.
  • We educate. We get the word out on better eye health through brochures, fact sheets, public service announcements, newsletters, media campaigns, special events and the web.
  • We advocate. We work with government officials at the state, local and national levels - building grassroots advocacy movements that will improve our nation's public health policies.
  • We support groundbreaking vision research.
  • We train. We train and certify adult and children's vision screeners and screening instructors through the only national program of its kind, providing 20,000 vision screening personnel with the skills they need to help people in their communities.
  • We are in your community today. We improve the quality of life for hundreds of thousands through our community programs.
