Sight Rescue – an NGO


IMG_7191
Sight Rescue Initiative is a non-profit making organization that will serve the developing countries as a provider of primary eye care, education and advocacy for the prevention of avoidable blindness.
Our mission is to help eliminate preventable blindness and promote the quality of life in developing countries.
Sight rescue initiative has five goals and we try as much as possible to achieve these goals in every project. The goals include vision screening to detect poor vision or risk factors that interfere with vision and normal visual development. We screen for cataract and also offer free cataract surgeries, screen for Glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macula degeneration and we provide proper referrals, counseling and medication when needed.
The second goal is the prevention of blindness and impaired vision due to uncorrected refractive error through the provision of free refraction and glasses for school children and free reading glasses for presbyopes (an age related condition that makes it difficult for you to read very close).
The third goal is the treatment of ocular medication, free treatment would be prescribed for minor ocular conditions such as allergies, vernal, atopic and infectious conjunctivitis, dry eye and other ocular surface disorders.
The fourth goal is to provide low vision and rehabilitative care.
The fifth goal is to promote ocular health awareness through education and also promote continuity by training focus persons in the community to serve as sight rescue advocates, recognize common eye illnesses after the completion of the project and give appropriate referrals.
