The World Health Organization estimates that 36 million people are blind and 253 million people are visually impaired worldwide. This number is projected to triple by 2050. Over 75% of these cases are caused by preventable or treatable conditions. But many people in developing countries do not have access to adequate medical care, and may end up losing their vision unnecessarily. SEE International strives to help to those in need who would not otherwise have access to quality eye care.
SEE provides training, education, and resources to prevent and treat several conditions that cause blindness, including cataracts, childhood blindness, corneal blindness, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and strabismus.
