The Moran Eye Center’s Hope in Sight Campaign is raising critical funds to find cures for eye diseases like AMD that blind millions of people around the world each year, and to provide care for the millions more who could have their sight restored. More than 6.4 million Americans (including almost 500,000 children) are blind or impaired by eye disease, and this number is projected to reach 9 million by 2020. Globally, the number jumps to 285 million. Blindness has a uniquely deep economic impact, especially in the developing world. In 2010, economists put the costs of vision loss at $4.3 trillion. And second only to being diagnosed with a terminal disease, blindness is the diagnosis patients say they fear most.
