• The "VISION" of Lions

    In 1925, Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become "Knights of the Blind". Since then, Lions around the world have been recognized for their service to the blind and visually impaired. Helen Keller could not have possibly imagined the impact of the Lions' commitment to blindness prevention.

    Bringing rays of light to the darkness of countless people around the world, Lions have established the majority of eye banks worldwide, funded ground-breaking research on leading causes of blindness, organized eyeglass recycling efforts and helped hundreds of thousands of visually impaired people develop the skills to live productive lives.
