Creating Better Vision For a Child Now Creates A Better Life Forever
The Better Vision for Children Foundation (BVC) is a non-profit charity whose sole purpose…
…Is to prevent and cure partial or total blindness resulting from amblyopia (lazy eye) through: distributing information to parents, pre-schoolers, childrens’ homes, etc., on the importance of getting childrens’ eyes preschool tested and then corrective measures performed by ophthalmologists and other professionals with experience in screening and treating amblyopia.
…To continue our program of mass screening of one–four-year-old children for amblyopia with a digital photoscreener that can be operated by non-medical personnel.
…Payment of, or reduction in, the cost of the prescription eyeglasses or lenses required for treatment of underlying eye disorders.
…To distribute in Africa a half-million field test kits to diagnose childhood ambliopia.
…Is to have every preschool child’s eyes tested and corrective measures performed by ophthalmologists and other professionals with experience in screening and treating amblyopia. Only 3–4 percent of children in the U.S. receive eye care services before the age of six.
Most vision related diseases in children are completely curable if detected and treated at an early age.
We welcome donations in any amount. All donations are used exclusively to assist with education, detection and treatment of the amblyopic condition among disadvantaged children.
“I urge you to help BVC and get your preschoolers screened as soon as possible—as these problems often result in lifelong blindness or even death. Have your child checked immediately. And if you don’t have children you should still help the Better Vision For Children Foundation by giving as much as you can.”
