Every day, over 150 million people wake up in darkness because they cannot afford access to eyecare. Every year, 80% of these people are condemned to unemployment.
ReSight is transforming these people - the majority of whom are women - from symbols of hopelessness into caregivers and visionaries. These people now stand as Vision Guardians, previously vision-impaired patients that we trained and now pay to educate and screen their communities for vision ailments, diabetes, and hypertension.
This is our big idea: to democratize eyecare services by empowering the very people who needed them most to direct their distribution.
