SIGHT RESTORATION & BLINDNESS PREVENTION

JFF’s Sight Restoration and Blindness Prevention Project started in 1991 offering cataract surgery in a mobile operating theatre, free of charge for economically-disadvantaged people in the villages of Bali.

There are 7 million blind people in Indonesia, and 4.6 million of these are cataract blind, a condition which is curable in most cases. However for most Indonesians the cost of a cataract operation is far beyond their financial capacity and they remain blind throughout their lives, a burden on their families and communities.

The John Fawcett Foundation is committed to do as much as it can to eradicate curable blindness in Indonesia and to this end is seeking funding to expand its very successful mobile eye clinic model to other economically-disadvantaged areas of Indonesia.

FREE CATARACT SURGERY

JFF has mobile eye clinic programs based in Bali and Lombok. These sophisticated mobile units take the cataract surgery to the people in their villages. Experienced ophthalmic surgeons and nurses perform the surgery in a sterile environment, and the post-operative results achieved are excellent.
