Thanks to you, we were able to exceed our World Sight Day goal! ALL proceeds will go to fund free cataract operations, screen children for glasses and eye disease, and support scholarships for young women to become ophthalmic technicians and Aadya Screeners. You can still watch our inspiring World Sight Day program, featuring Aamna’s story, below.

Help us reach our World Sight Day goal!

World Sight Day Details

What: Follow a patient, Aamna, through her eye care journey at CBI’s partner hospital, Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital, and learn about our impact this year.

Donations will be matched up to $50,000 to support our Cataract, Pediatric and Certified Ophthalmic Paramedic Programs, as well as our new Aadya Initiative. For pennies, a child can have their eyes examined and receive free glasses.

When: Thursday, October 13, 2022 6:30-7:15 p.m. CDT

Where: Watch it live on this landing page, and on CBI’s Facebook page.

For only $25, a 20-minute cataract surgery can help someone see again within 24 hours.  And for $500, a young woman can be empowered by ophthalmic technical training. When you give to Combat Blindness International, you’re transforming lives.
