Charity Vision

A subsidiary of Deseret International Foundation, Charity Vision is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization with a focus on empowering local physicians in the developing world and creating sustainable solutions to the worldwide blindness epidemic.

Charity Vision works with skilled local physicians and provide them with the surgical equipment and supplies they need to be successful. They provide their talent and time at no cost. they supply them with whatever it takes to restore sight to people in their own communities. The result is a network of developing health systems that perform charitable surgeries free of charge.

Since 1984, they’ve provided over 350,000 free surgeries to people suffering from needless blindness and other debilitating health problems. We average about 30,000 new procedures a year. Our average cost of one sight restoring procedure is a mere $25.

  • Over 90% of the blind live in developing countries.
  • Over 80% of blindness can be cured.
  • Every minute a child goes blind.

The need is great. Please join us. Your donation WILL change a life. See how you can get involved at:
