Friends for Sight works passionately each day to save sight and change lives.
Working with local school districts, SightFest provides day-long events offering free eye exams and glasses to children whose families cannot afford vision care and do not qualify for other programs like Medicaid.

Each month we highlight eye health and safety issues by providing information about eye safety, threats to vision and available community resources.
AMD is very common! Over 10 million people in the United States have AMD.
AMD can strike anyone! But some people are at higher risk - older adults, Caucasians, people with a family history, and smokers.
Early stages can be silent! In the most common type of AMD, the earliest stages do not cause symptoms, so regular eye exams are critical.
New treatments are being studied! There are many clinical studies ongoing and new clinical trials are evaluating stem cell transplants.
