Mission Statement

HelpMeSee is a global campaign to ELIMINATE BLINDNESS caused by untreated cataract, which is by far the leading cause of blindness, making up 51% of all cases globally.




Description

HelpMeSee was founded in 2010 with the goal of making the miracle of sight possible for every blind child and adult in the world, regardless of where they live or how poor they may be. Our goal is to deliver very low-cost, high-quality Manual Small Incision Cataract Surgery (MSICS) to millions of adults and children in the developing world who have cataracts - giving them back not only their sight but their independence.

HelpMeSee is pursuing our ambitious goal of eliminating cataract blindness worldwide by training tens of thousands of MSICS specialists in developing countries through the use of a high-fidelity simulator and sophisticated courseware, as well as collaborating with existing MSICS specialists who already perform this procedure in their communities. With our local partners, HelpMeSee is committed to saving the sight of millions.
