Age related cataracts is the most common cause of blindness in Pakistan. This treatable and preventable condition is most common amongst the elderly living in poverty. These vulnerable, elderly men and women barely have enough food and shelter to survive. Then they face the prospect of losing their eyesight. Any hope for the future, dignity and independence is lost.
But the good news is that most eyesight problems can be prevented or treated with relatively little expense. Our free eye camps across Pakistan carry out routine eye exams to treat existing conditions, ease physical discomfort and prevent further damage. We also offer free eye surgery, and free glasses to correct near and far sighted impairment.
