There are many visually impaired people around the world, but in low income countries, this exacerbates the effects of poverty. Typically, children with refractive error issues cannot study effectively and drop out of education, whilst older people start to suffer from conditions such as glaucoma and cataracts.
Humanity First offers free or subsidised consultations, prescription glasses and cataract surgery. HF is also deploying mobile surgery units in Africa. Over 15,000 patients have benefited so far.
