Mission Statement

The mission of Prevent Blindness North Carolina is to reach people before blindness strikes.

Description

Prevent Blindness North Carolina is the only agency in North Carolina dedicated solely to saving sight and preventing blindness. Organized in 1967 as a non-profit health agency and independent affiliate of Prevent Blindness America (founded 1908), PBNC has been serving some of the neediest and most at-risk populations of the state of North Carolina for forty-four years.

PBNC helps prevent vision loss by working within communities to provide screenings, trainings and access to follow-up resources. Through direct service programs, PBNC reaches over 540,000 people (predominantly children), and links financially needy people to more than $500,000 worth of free and discounted eye care annually.
