JOIN US IN CELEBRATING WORLD SIGHT DAY
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2022
Twelve million Americans and over a billion people worldwide are blind or visually impaired. Through its foundation, Beauty of Sight, Florida Lions Eye Bank is working hard to find treatments to cure and prevent eye diseases and vision loss.
We’re looking forward to a day when everyone in the world can see clearly, and live a life free from visual impairment. With your support, our vision will become a reality.
