About Vision for the Poor

25 years ago, one blind man cradled in his sons’ arms emerged from the Guatemalan rainforest and started our quest to cure treatable blindness. Today, the Visualiza Social Service Eye Care Network we started:

  • Builds Sustainable Eye Care Hospitals & Vision Centers
  • Empowers Local Eye Care Specialists
  • Funds Essential Ophthalmic Infrastructure
