Product DetailsProduct Description
Your gift includes examinations, fittings, a new prosthesis and follow-up. The leading cause of blindness in children is eye injury and three out of four of children’s eye injuries happen when no adult is present. In Armenia, tragic accidents continue to take the sight of hundreds of children in each year with a number of these the result of land mines, which still cover the Armenian landscape and are picked up by curious children. The Project receives several requests each month for eye prostheses from people who cannot afford them primarily young people.
