Description: Blindness is catastrophic to an individual and in many cases sight loss is preventable. Prevent Blindness Northern California (PBNC), a 501(c)(3) organization, provides services to prevent vision impairment. Since 1966, PBNC has screened over 1 million children and adults, connected over 50,000 people to vision care services and certified over 25,000 vision screeners.

FEES: All services are free of charge except for bulk orders of publications and professional education courses.
Mission: Prevent Blindness Northern California is devoted to the preservation of sight for the people of Northern California. We accomplish this through direct vision screening services, vision screening training programs, public education, and advocacy. We believe that detection of vision disorders at a treatable stage and raising awareness of eye health and safety are essential to preventing vision loss and blindness.
