Combat Blindness International: Eliminating Preventable Blindness
At Combat Blindness International, our mission is to eliminate preventable blindness worldwide by providing sustainable, equitable solutions for sight through partnerships and innovation.
Elimination & Prevention
80% of blindness is preventable. Between cataract surgeries, screenings, providing glasses and providing medical supplies, we try to treat preventable blindness in all ages across the world. Through these treatments, we can not only directly affect an individual’s life, but impact their family and their community, as well.
Building Capacity and Infrastructure
We believe in the saying, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” CBI goes a step beyond simply providing surgeries. We work with our partners to develop sustainable solutions to their specific problems and provide them with the tools, knowledge, and infrastructure to operate independently. A higher capacity means more people can get the treatment they need.
