SightFirst. Helen Keller was born in 1880 in the USA. At the age of 18 months she developed a fever which left her blind and deaf. In 1925 she attended the Lions Clubs International Convention and she challenged Lions to become “knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness”. The Lions accepted her challenge and our work ever since has included sight programs aimed at preventable blindness.
The efforts of Lions in the field of vision are expansive and well documented. Our SightFirst program has played a key role in reducing global blindness—building comprehensive and sustainable eye care systems, including projects that deliver eye care services, build or strengthen eye care facilities, train professionals and build awareness about eye health in under served communities.
Since 1990, SightFirst has played a major role in helping restore, improve and preserve the visions of millions around the world.
