Every 11 minutes someone goes blind, yet half of all blindness is preventable!
But, Prevent Blindness Texas is there, fighting to save the sight of thousands of Texans by screening the eyes of children and adults, educating the public about the importance of healthy vision, and connecting those in need with direct access to free eye exams and/or glasses. Education about healthy vision and access to vision care are our top priorities at Prevent Blindness Texas and we remain dedicated to providing Texans with the knowledge and services they need to protect their eyes from eye diseases and eye injuries.
The support and generosity of our friends, sponsors, partners and donors have truly impacted the lives of adults and children throughout the Lone Star State. Because of Prevent Blindness Texas’ focus on education and direct access to vision care, children are excelling in school, adults are becoming employed, and seniors are living independently. Every day, because of the efforts of hundreds of volunteers across the Lone Star State, Prevent Blindness Texas makes a difference in the lives of thousands.
