Gosh, being able to see is the best isn’t it? And I’m not just talking about ‘seeing’ in general, I’m talking about perceiving the details of life around us—recognizing faces, witnessing a plane pass by and experiencing a beautiful snow-covered mountain. This is a privilege we’re provided with, living in a society with greater access to vision care, and it’s an issue we rarely think about. That’s an incredibly weighty paragraph, but extremely relevant and true.
There are hundreds of millions who live life without access to vision care. One Sight stated it perfectly;
…access to sight is a basic human right.
One Sight is a non-profit providing access to quality eye care and eyewear to underprivileged communities all over the world, and in their past 25 years, they have improved the lives of more than 8 million people in 40 countries.
