Since its foundation in 1979, the FMO has funded hundreds of relevant and innovative projects that have contributed, over the medium and long term, to improved visual health services for the population as a whole. More than $40 million have been injected to maintain our vision and eye health. These precious dollars, collected with your help, have led to major advances in detecting and treating eye diseases and now enable a large majority of people, here and elsewhere, to enjoy healthy vision.
