Our Mission

The mission of Center For Sight Foundation is to see beyond the financial circumstances of those in need and to deliver sight saving surgery, so that no one suffers visual loss due to a surgically treatable condition.

About the Foundation

Center For Sight Foundation is dedicated to restoring vision to those who can least afford the required care.
