The Eye Foundation of America's (EFA) mission is to go where the need is greatest - often rural and remote areas of developing countries where there is no medical care or where the cost of the care is prohibitive.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there are as many as 1.4 million blind children worldwide who are affected. Although the EFA serves people of all ages, we have a special place in our heart for children.
The campaign is focused on those in rural India who suffer with diabetes and are at risk for, or may already be suffering from, diabetic retinopathy - a condition that often leads to blindness if left untreated.
A 20 minute operation can give a child 75 years of life. Help EFA be part of the solution!
Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to Eye Foundation Of America Inc whenever you shop on AmazonSmile.
AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service.
EFA is committed to eliminating avoidable blindness. Avoidable blindness is that which could be treated or prevented by known, cost-effective means.
As little as $10 can give a child a pair of glasses and open a whole new world for them in 2015! Help us make the gift of sight a reality.
100% of our donations go toward our projects.
Thank you to our Advisory Board and all our tireless volunteers!
