Canadian Eyesight Global formerly Canadian Eyesight International is a registered Canadian charitable organization comprised of surgeons, doctors, business leaders and numerous volunteers concerned with global blindness. It is made up of individual Canadians concerned about other people - those in India and such developing nations who are especially vulnerable to blindness as well as those who have already lost their eyesight. In these nations, there are many health and social issues that require attention. Because blindness is caused by many problems, including for example nutrition, sanitation and trauma, we have the opportunity to bring health in many different forms.
Global trends show millions of people going blind each year. Eighty percentof the worlds blindness is preventable by means of nutrition, sanitation, antibiotics or surgery. Canadian Eyesight’s view is to work toward the elimination of the preventable causes of blindness. Working with other health organizations and various levels of government, we believe this goal is achievable.
