Give the Gift of Sight!

Give the Gift of Sight!

Summary

Shawn Brown was born withoculocutaneous albinism, and astigmatism - one of the first babies ever to be diagnosed with both syndromes. Until recently he also lived in a little bubble of clear vision - 10 feet in diameter. And Shawn is just one of hundreds of thousands of people living with low vision in the world - left out of the bright, clear, vibrant world around them.But you have the power to shift the focus, like you did for Shawn - and give thousands like him - their vision.

Challenge

The technology to give the millions of people with low vision back their sight exists. It's available right now for consumers to purchase. But these advanced mechanisms and procedures come with a steep price tag that many of those millions just can't afford. Lewis Vision Improvement Foundation is changing that.

Solution

At Lewis Vision Improvement Foundation, we don't believe that money should keep a person from experiencing the world in Technicolor, through our most precious sense. We shatter the financial barrier to vision by providing monetary grants to qualified low vision and legally blind individuals so they may acquire innovative technological products that enhance or enable sight. We make the impossible possible. We give low vision people the tools to see.

Long-Term Impact

This is more than glasses. Your gift is literally turning the light on for the people like Shawn, who live in the blurred, dim world of low vision. Its life-changing technology that allows a visually impaired person to live a full, productive life: seeing the faces of parents, children, and loved ones, living out passions and building careers, all with clarity and focus they'd never imagined possible. It's possible. Right now, you have the power to give a person the incomparable gift of sight.
