Better Vision – Brighter Future, Honduras

In low-income countries, many lack access to vision care. Poor eyesight can prevent children from succeeding in school, and adults from earning a living to support their families. IRT’s Better Vision-Brighter Future program is addressing this need by sending trained volunteers to rural communities in Honduras to conduct vision tests, and provide men, women and children with corrective glasses.  

Since 2011, IRT volunteers have screened 1,725 children and adults, and provided more than 1,100 pairs of eyeglasses in Honduras.
