Saving Kids' Sight was originally founded by Sarah Smale in 2014 to help children like her, living with visual impairment, to keep their sight and to enjoy a full and happy life. Sarah is currently a student at Stanford University, studying math and computer science.
Saving Kid's Sight has helped over a hundred families of children with severe glaucoma to measure their child's eye pressure several times a day at home. Families send the results to their ophthalmologist, who can adjust their child's treatment in real time, and thus preserve their precious sight.
We host several education and support events each year for families in the Puget Sound region. Past events include themed arts and crafts afternoons including glass fusing and ceramics, a zoo overnight camp, aquarium visit, swimming pool fun, and BBQs.
Our Scientific advisory committee consists of some of the top Pediatric Ophthalmologists in the USA, with a special interest in pediatric glaucoma. Click to read more.
