Our Philosophy

Light for Sight is uniting clinical institutions, research groups, patient organizations and the private sector, with a single focus: to eliminate severe visual impairment among all children and adolescents with keratoconus.

Our flagship program is “Light for Sight 21”, which aims to reduce severe visual impairment among children and adolescents with Down Syndrome – who have a very high prevalence of the disease.
