This never gets old. This was a patient during one of our surgical campaigns in Ethiopia. Leading her into and out of the operating room showed us that she had accepted her fate and came to terms with the fact that she might live out the rest of her days blind. Despite her saying "I'm fine", it was clear that she was not. But she is now, thanks to the amazing group of individuals at Quiha Hospital and the support of the Himalayan Cataract Project. Continuing down the line of patients, I could see her through the corner of my eye slowly continuing to bow and back forth as she whispered "five...I saw five fingers". The end of the video shows a fraction of our patients who had surgery and can finally see well again, ululating out of joy. The book, Second Suns, is written about the Himalayan Cataract Project and described the moment perfectly: "Her cry was contagious. As the doctors moved down the line, dozens of other women who'd regained their sight stood and added their voices to the trilling chorus. Sometime in my life I may hear a sound that expresses joy more purely. But I can't imagine when." There are millions of our fellow human beings like her out there waiting for their chance to see again. Read more about the Himalayan Cataract Project and the amazing work they have been doing to eradicate reversible blindness. @cureblindness

"If I am able to see I will be grateful. You people are like my parents. With no eyesight I am lifeless. You are filling up life in me. My mother carried me for 9 months in her womb. On the 10th month she showed me this beautiful world. For me you are similar to her. You are showing me this beautiful world through your work." -Khantey Airi, a 65-year-old woman from the Himalayan district of far western Nepal. #restoresight #cureblindness #charityvision

In rural Ethiopia, eyeglasses can be so hard to obtain, that people will make their own. This man did just that, with a piece of glass probably from a soda bottle.

PROBAR had the honor of hosting our ambassador, Geoffrey Tabin, at our headquarters to speak to the team about his climbing adventures as well as his work as an ophthalmologist.
Geoff is a climber, skier, eye surgeon and chairman of the Himalayan Cataract Project, bringing back sight to those who would otherwise spend their lives in darkness.
He is an inspiring member of the community, locally and abroad, and we are proud to support his work.

Our Team Member and fellow Guide Brad Graff recently completed another Grand Canyon #rimtorimtorim adventure ... this time with his wife Lisa and 14 friends. Brad is in training to guide #DanBerlin in November along the #GreatWallofChina to help challenge perceptions of what a blind athlete CAN accomplish. We'll also be helping to educate and empower communities in China to raise awareness surrounding the blind community. #seethefuture - photo: Brad in blue coat with Grand Canyon in the background

Six years ago today....my baby boy, Hudson Matthew, meeting my cousin, Matthew (who he's named after), for the first time. Matt's not on IG, he's too busy restoring peoples' sight as a surgeon in third world countries. But nonetheless, I love this pic too much not to post❤️

After a 10 minute cataract surgery by Dr. Oliva, she is pictured on the right with her cataract removed, and her sight restored! Swipe to see her celebrate with her happy surgeon. ✨
Dr. Matt Oliva celebrated #WorldSightDay last week by working with the Himalayan Cataract Project: Cure Blindness to perform 953 sight restoring surgeries in Woldia, Ethiopia.

The Magic of Light reaches Mumbai... SEF Dandia Extravaganza enthralled the Bay Area on Saturday night with it's magnificent Grand Finale'! I had the honor to compere this event again this year, representing Sankara on stage in front of thousands of people. A surreal, amazing experience as always. It was a fundraiser for SEF’s upcoming hospital in Mumbai - a project which I am heading. Come join the Mumbai hospital project team, as together, we bring the Magic of Light to Mumbai and brighten the lives of those needlessly blind. Write to me at sonal@giftofvision.org if you would like to join this team. •
SEF Dandia events are the largest and one of the most happening across six continents because of it's larger than life cause. Together, we made the world a brighter place this festive season, as the funds raised by these events enable us to give vision to those millions needlessly blind. •
It is the synergies of the participants, volunteers and everyone else involved help us make the experience magical, musical, mesmerizing, marvelous, and magnificent each year. The amazing talent, energy, enthusiasm, style, and generosity of everyone involved is out of this world. The spectacularly magnificent visual we created together with the tea-lights/diyas in hand during Aarti was absolutely Divine.

The colors, the smiles, the culture, the styles.. and the cause.. absolutely touching the hearts and lives of millions. We are humbled by, and grateful for everyone's overwhelming participation and support.

Girja in Bihar, #India, noticed that something was wrong with her eyesight when she couldn't care for her grandchildren properly. After an eye screening she was diagnosed with #cataract and after surgery her sight has improved. Her message to #Sightsavers supporters: "You have provided me with my sight, and I will bless you for as long as I live!" #MillionMiracles
