Right to Sight from San Antonio, Texas

Right to Sight and Right to Sight International work closely together from San Antonio, Texas, to help people around the world. Since 2006, we've been doing everything we can to help bring a charitable yet self-sustaining model of ocular care to Africa and the world. Our goal is to provide not only eye surgery, but other optical services such as glasses, therapies, and exams to people who otherwise could not have them.

Eyes, Right to Sight in San Antonio, TX

In Africa, more than 7 million people are needlessly blind due to an easily treated and preventable cause. 50% of these cases are cataracts, and 15% would benefit from glaucoma treatment—both very simple treatments. 60% of those affected by blindness in Africa are women.

Cataracts occur when the lens of an eye is cloudy and blocks vision. In Africa and South America, this happens much faster due to sunlight. Cataracts can be corrected with a 10-minute operation that only costs about $20.

Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve, silently and painlessly stealing your vision over time. Africans are genetically predisposed to develop glaucoma. This disease, however, is easily screened and treated.

If it's so simple, why is it such a problem? In Africa and South America, there are very few surgeons due to a lack of facilities and trained support, as well as a lack of patients due to transit issues. We provide: 

 

• Better Facilities • Better Support Teams • Better Training • Access to Care

 

The end result is a model which is capable of helping people who need it while still making enough money to pay for itself and reinvest in building more infrastructure, better teams, better surgeons—overall a better system—to care for our patients. Eventually, we will expand to help sufferers from other countries and provide treatment around the world to those less fortunate. We are committed to stopping the spread of unnecessary blindness.
