Through Different Eyes

December 2012
Through Different Eyes

Through Different Eyes” is an initiative aimed at raising awareness about avoidable blindness, that most eye conditions are avoidable and easily treated. It also aims at breaking the myths and misconceptions around visual impairment to build a society which realises the potential of people who are blind or who have low vision.

This first awareness event planned as part of this initiative was organised in Mumbai. This event was woven around a unique photography exhibition and an experience zone which will help break myths and misconceptions around visual impairments.

The exhibition is a display of images taken by children whose eyesight were restored only recently with Sightsavers support.
Experience blindness

At the exhibition you will have an opportunity to experience first hand the challenges that person who is blind faces in his/ her daily life.
