The Ability To See is One of Life's Most Precious Gifts
Most of us can’t imagine what it would be like living our lives blind. But that is the reality for millions of people. Cataracts is the leading cause of blindness worldwide, accounting for nearly 22 million cases. And yet, it’s completely treatable. At Monson Vision we believe that the ability to see is one of life’s most precious gifts and we want to do our part.
In 2011, Dr. Bryan Monson founded the organization Insight Humanitarian. This program provides a stable platform to engage ophthalmology surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists and organizational volunteers with corporations and private philanthropy to provide free sight-restoring vision to the blind in developing nations. Insight Humanitarian works with proven established initiatives, on-site community-based health organizations and local physicians for long-term sustainability.
Insight Humanitarian has had the privilege to help in many countries including Napal, El Salvador, Mexico, and parts of Africa.
