An estimated 1.4 million children in the world are blind. Three-quarters of them live in the poorest regions of Asia and Africa, most lacking access to treatment for often easily-treatable conditions. Half of all cases of refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism) in the world remain undetected and untreated; this lack of treatment for these easily-correctable disorders is the leading cause of visual impairment and blindness in children.
This is why Lions Clubs International Foundation and Johnson & Johnson Vision Care Companies (JJVCC) have collaborated to provide eye health education and eye care access to millions of children since 2002 through Sight for Kids, a school based program that mobilizes volunteers to provide eye health education, high quality vision screenings and referral access to professional eye care and treatment, including eyeglasses.
