US$14.3 billion is needed to treat existing cases of refractive error and cataracts worldwide.

Unaddressed distance vision impairment in many low- and middle-income regions is 4 times higher than in high-income regions.

A Historic Undertaking

The efforts of Lions in the field of vision are expansive and well documented. Our SightFirst program has played a key role in reducing global blindness—building comprehensive and sustainable eye care systems, including projects that deliver eye care services, build or strengthen eye care facilities, train professionals and build awareness about eye health in underserved communities.

Since 1990, SightFirst funds have enabled Lions, health care providers, and partner organizations around the world to fight the major causes of preventable and reversible blindness and assist those who are blind or visually impaired. More than 488 million people have been impacted over the last 30 years. Millions more still need our help.
