Since 2002, Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF) and Johnson & Johnson have worked together to screen the vision of more than 24 million children in select cities in Asia and Africa.
About 1.4 million children around the world are blind, with three-quarters of them living in the poorest regions of Asia and Africa without access to treatment for easily correctable conditions like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Since Lions Club was founded in 1917, the Lions have worked on projects designed to prevent blindness, restore eyesight and improve eye health and eye care for hundreds of millions of people worldwide.
Sight for Kids is one of the longest running, and largest, international school vision-screening programs continuing as a public-private initiative across multiple countries in Asia, Africa, and Eastern Europe, including developing countries.
