Saving Sight for a Lifetime
Make a difference - help restore the vision of a child, a grandparent or a parent around the world. Here are some examples of what a small amount of money can do:
- $5 will sponsor 1 pair of glasses for a needy child
- $50 will sponsor 10 pairs of glasses
- $75 will sponsor 1 cataract operation
- $200 will sponsor surgery to restore a child's sight
- $475 will sponsor a cataract surgery instrument set

Make a gift in tribute to someone special. Honoring a friend, family member, or colleague with a gift to the International Eye Foundation is a wonderful way to recognize a significant achievement or a milestone. You will be helping others with the gift of sight as you pay tribute to that special person. IEF will send an acknowledgement card in your name to the person(s) being honored.
