About Prevent Blindness Texas

Our mission is to prevent blindness and preserve sight.
Our vision is vision - making healthy eyes a priority in Texas.

Established in 1956 and incorporated in 1965, Prevent Blindness Texas is the state's leading eye health and safety nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing blindness and preserving sight. For over 60 years, we have helped communities invest in critical eye health by providing early detection services, patient support, systems enhancement, public policy, and health education and promotion programs. More than 50% of all blindness can be prevented, yet this can only occur through early detection and proper treatment. Interventions such as vision screenings are an essential element of a strong public health approach to vision and eye health care. Last year, we served more than 32,000 individuals across the state by providing screenings, education, navigation services and resources to improve access to vision care and treatment.
