WELCOME TO VISION RESTORATION INTERNATIONAL
Our Mission is to support and conduct non-partisan missions, education, and informational activities to increase knowledge and surgical skill of ophthalmologists in developing nations. We strive to combat the lack of health care in developing nations by providing free Ophthalmic surgical procedures to individuals in developing nations and the uninsured, underinsured, and those effected by homelessness in the United States of America.
Cataracts, a surgically curable condition, remains one of the most prevalent cause of blindness in the developing world due to lack of access to care. Medical Outreach to developing nations can cure blindness due to cataracts safely, effectively, and in a cost effective manner. The impact for patients in the developing world is tremendous-cataract surgery performed for a family’s primary economic provider can mean the difference between life and death for entire families.”
