Look and See

The “Look and See” programme is designed to treat elderly people suffering from one of the most widespread conditions associated with age – cataracts. This aid will target the most vulnerable categories of senior citizens: those living in remote areas with the most difficult access to hi-tech medical assistance.

We wish to improve the quality of life elderly people by returning their vision through cataract surgery, enabling them to lead a more meaningful, independent and dignified life.
