Since 1988, the OneSight program has given new hope to people all over the world. Vision is one of those senses that so many people take for granted. It's when you start to lose that sense that you realize just how much impact good vision has had on your life. There are millions of people around the world and in your own community that struggle day in and day out without the vision that could change their lives. OneSight has given new life to over 9,000,000 people worldwide in 41 countries.
Globally, there are 8 sustainable vision centers that provide care to 2,000,000 people. Each year volunteer doctors, opticians, optical staff, lab staff, administrative staff and volunteer community leaders that get together and form a mission team to serve the international as well as the domestic community. We go to places that are in some of the most dire of circumstances such as Honduras, Panama, South Africa, Ghana, Thailand, China, Vietnam, Brazil, Mexico and more. We also go to places all around the USA.
You might not know it, but your neighbor down the street could be struggling to see this very minute. That waitress in that diner might just have children that are in desperate need of glasses to excel in school and in life. OneSight is here to provide that help. However, we don't just give glasses. We also check the eye health of everyone who comes to our clinic and treat or refer them to the right people to help them get better. This is help that most of these individuals will not have gotten themselves.
I am proud to say that I have personally been a part of 8 mission trips all over the world and domestically. Giving back to the communities of this Earth has always been a passion of mine. I hope to share this personal world with you with some pictures below.
