Preventing Blindness, Saving Sight for Millions of People Around the World

For nearly 100 years, our members have worked on projects designed to prevent blindness, restore eyesight and improve eye care for hundreds of millions of people worldwide. Lions volunteer to take part in sight projects that have:

  • Established or strengthened pediatric eye care centers that have helped more than 120 million children.
  • Helped halt the spread of trachoma in Ethiopia by providing 10 million doses of the sight-saving drug azithromycin annually.
  • Prevented serious vision loss for more than 30 million people worldwide.
  • Improved eye care for 100 million people by training more than 650,000 eye care professionals and building 315 eye hospitals.
  • Distributed more than 147 million treatments for river blindness.
  • Provided nearly 8 million cataract surgeries.
  • Saved the sight of more than 14 million children by providing eye screenings, glasses and other treatments through Sight for Kids.
  • Vaccinated 41 million children in Africa against measles – a leading cause of childhood blindness.

Since 1990, Lions have raised US$415 million through two SightFirst fundraising campaigns to help provide vision for all.

Lions Work to Improve Sight and Prevent Blindness

Through efforts such as these, Lions have gained worldwide recognition for our work to improve sight and prevent blindness. Our members around the world are also actively involved in:

  • Supporting Lions Eye Banks that provide eye tissue for sight-saving surgeries.
  • Screening the vision of hundreds of thousands of people every year.
  • Providing treatment to those at risk of losing their vision.

In 1925, Helen Keller challenged Lions to become “knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness.” And we accepted. Today, sight programs remain one of our defining causes.
