About Prevent Blindness
Founded in 1908, Prevent Blindness is the leading eye health and safety organization in the United States dedicated to preventing blindness and preserving sight across all age spectrums and eye conditions. Prevent Blindness focuses on improving the nation’s vision and eye health by educating the public on the importance of taking care of their eyes and vision, by empowering those with vision loss or eye disease, promoting advances in public health systems of care that support eye health needs, and by advocating for public policy that emphasizes early detection and access to eye care.
Round Up to Prevent Blindness
Patients can round up their purchase to the nearest dollar and AEG Vision will donate the change to help fund the sight-saving programs at Prevent Blindness.
The program provides a unique opportunity to help “Give the Gift of Sight” by donating at checkout and helping those in need in their own communities. This opportunity to donate is available at select practices across the country.
