A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye causing a decrease in vision and eventually blindness. Cataracts can be treated with surgery not available to many individuals in developing countries. Give the gift of cataract surgery and change someone else’s quality of life. They will be forever grateful.
Glaucoma is a condition that causes damage to your eye’s optic nerve and can lead to permanent vision loss if not treated in a timely manner. It can often be treated with medicated eye drops. It’s that simple! Give medicated eye drops to one of the hundreds of thousands who don’t have access to it. Change a life.
This is an expensive piece of equipment used in a comprehensive eye exam. We bring a slit lamp to every village we help and leave it with the most local optometrist so that doctor can continue to provide care to more and more people.
You know how you feel when you don’t have your glasses or contacts on? Everything is a little (or a lot) blurry. Imagine functioning and living every day like that with no treatment available to you. It would really limit your ability to function. Help someone else live a limitless life.
Sounds simple. However, wearing sunglasses is an essential prevention tactic from destroying your vision. Too much UV exposure can cause cataracts, macular degeneration and pterygia. Giving the gift of sunglasses can prevent permanent damage from the sun.
While in these remote villages we deliver gravity-fed water filters. We teach villagers how to use them and help in prevention of all water-borne illnesses, including parasites and infection. Share clean drinking water with your fellow humans.
4. Contact Lenses Canada Doctors and Staff volunteer and travel to developing countries to treat thousands of people. From education and prevention awareness to treating people with cataract surgery YOU are a part of changing someone else’s life with us.
