Project Vision


The World Health Organization estimates that 180 million people suffer from severe visual impairment (legally blind, by U.S.standards). The leading cause of preventable blindness throughout the world is cataracts, and 90% of this blindness is found in the  developing world.

Honduras is the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. In the Honduras South reside the poorest of their poor. Seventy percent of Hondurans over 50 years of age have cataracts.  Most reside in the South. There are 45,000 potential cataract patients there. 

We have preparing for our third surgical expedition for KHISH Project Vision from January 1-8, 2015.  A total of 160 patients received sight restoration surgeries in 2014.  We hope to increase this number in 2015.
