Unite for Sight Worldwide

Unite For Sight® is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that empowers communities worldwide to improve eye health and eliminate preventable blindness. At Unite for Sight’s Third Annual International Health Conference at Yale University in April 2006, Unite For Sight partner ophthalmologists Dr. James Clarke (Accra, Ghana), Dr. T. Senthil (Chennai, India), and Dr. Seth Wanye (Tamale, Ghana) discussed eye care needs and Unite For Sight programs in their countries.

Unite For Sight works with eye clinics worldwide that previously attempted to provide free cataract surgeries and other eye care services in their community, but were precluded from doing so by lack of staffing and funding. Unite For Sight’s model engages students and lay persons (both local and visiting) as support staff to eye doctors in the field, thus enabling community-based screening programs led by eye clinics without the need for extensive paid staff. The volunteers and eye clinic’s doctors jointly provide daily screening outreach programs in rural communities, and transport patients to the base eye clinic for treatment and surgery. Unite For Sight funds the eye care for the patients, who receive the same quality of surgical care in the same facilities as those who can afford to pay.
