Vision of a better tomorrow

Eye tests & free spectacles for children in the Philippines
Lions Clubs International provides unrivalled support for sight 

programmes and services within local communities across the world. 

Projects designed to prevent blindness, restore eyesight, improve eye 

health and benefit eye care have been an essential part of the work of 

Lions clubs across the world for nearly 100 years. 

It was in 1925 when Helen Keller, the inspirational deaf-blind 

campaigner, challenged Lions to be "knights of the blind in the 

crusade against darkness". Responding to this challenge continues in 

a range of sight related projects undertaken by Lions Clubs 

International British Isles & Ireland at home, and in support of 

communities overseas.
