District 4-A1 has several Endorsed Projects geared towards “Vision”…
Lions Work to Improve Sight and Prevent Blindness
Through efforts such as these, Lions have gained worldwide recognition for our work to improve sight and prevent blindness. Our members around the world are also actively involved in:
- Recycling eyeglasses at 18 centers worldwide.
- Screening the vision of hundreds of thousands of people every year.
- Preventing blindness by providing treatment to those at risk of losing their vision.
In 1925, Helen Keller challenged Lions to become “Knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness.” And we accepted. Today, sight programs remain one of our defining causes.
