Saving Sight is a nonprofit organization that changes lives through the gift of sight and charitable vision services. We were founded in 1960 as an eye bank in central Missouri, and today, our vision programs serve more than 100,000 people in local communities around the world. We strive to be the global partnership model for how eye banking and charitable vision services can most effectively serve people and communities.


Great things can be achieved when dedicated, passionate people approach the work of changing lives in a strategic way. We knew that when we worked with our stakeholders to develop Saving Sight’s first strategic plan in February of 2013. But when we completed that strategic plan this past year, 12 months ahead of schedule, we were amazed at the growth our 55-year-old organization had made in the past year. In the pages that follow, you’ll read about some of the major accomplishments Saving Sight realized in 2014-2015. You’ll read about how we: • Formalized a volunteer program, establishing a full-time volunteer coordinator and training 57 volunteers to aid in our work; • Enhanced follow-up efforts for children referred for an eye exam through our KidSight program; • Partnered with nonprofit ReSpectacle to expand distribution of glasses through our Eyeglass Recycling Program; • Grew our international tissue distribution network to bring the gift of sight to more people. The result of this strategic growth? Together, we changed more lives by saving sight in local communities and around the world over the past year than any other year in our history. While we have a talented staff that embrace the difference they can make in the communities we serve each day, the work of Saving Sight is collaborative. We are only able to change lives because of our generous donors, partners, volunteers and financial contributors who believe in our mission to save sight. Join us in celebrating the success of our work together this past year, but then renew your commitment to our mission. There are more lives to change, and with your help, we’re poised to save the sight of more than ever before in 2015-2016.

Sincerely,

PCC Al Blumenberg President, Board of Directors

Tony Bavuso Chief Executive Officer

Cornea Donation & Transplantation

CORNEA DISTRIBUTION Since 1960, Saving Sight has coordinated cornea donation and the distribution of corneas for transplant. In 2014-2015 we distributed:

3,078 corneas for transplant to help people receive the precious gift of sight.

36.2% in our Missouri, Kansas, and Illinois communities, 21.3% across the rest of the United States and 42.5% internationally.

AN ARTIST’S VISION

Saving Sight Annual Report | Page 12


Cornea Donation & Transplantation

ANNE As a teacher and artist, Anne was diagnosed with Fuchs’ corneal dystrophy, which, if left untreated, would have blinded her left eye. Her vision deteriorated to the extent that she required the transplantation of corneal tissue from a generous eye donor. Today, Anne’s vision has significantly improved, allowing her to create artwork for her friends and acquaintances and remain active in her community as the planning commissioner. Scan the QR code to watch Anne tell how the gift of sight through eye donation has changed her life.

Cornea Donation & Transplantation

RESEARCH TISSUE SAVING SIGHT Eye donors give the gift of sight through cornea transplants, but also have the opportunity to change the lives of those affected by eye conditions by providing tissue for research and education. Saving Sight distributed 963 corneas and eye tissues to 32 research teams investigating the eye and eye conditions.

443 corneas and eye tissues were distributed to 26 educational and training facilities to train eye care and vision professionals.

Saving Sight Annual Report | Page 14


Cornea Donation & Transplantation

UNDERSTANDING DISEASES FOR BETTER TREATMENT OPTIONS Researchers at the University of California, Davis receive research tissue from Saving Sight to better understand how different qualities of the cornea might connect to blinding eye diseases. Specifically, they study the stiffness of the cornea and how it relates to the onset and progression of diseases like glaucoma and Fuch’s corneal dystrophy. These studies are designed to help the medical community understand how to better treat patients with these diseases to save sight.

KidSight Vision Screening Program

KIDSIGHT Using a photoscreening device, we quickly and noninvasively screen children ages 6 months to 6 years old for common causes of childhood vision loss and follow up with parents to ensure children get the eye care they need.

Our trained technicians and volunteers have screened more than 392,353 Missouri Children since 1995. This year, we screened a record of 59,426 children. We referred 3,831 at-risk children to eye care professionals after a screening, with 67% receiving follow-up care.

KidSight Vision Screening Program

FOLLOW-UP EFFORTS SEE BIG RESULTS In 2015, Saving Sight completed the second year of a three year grant awarded by the Missouri Foundation for Health to expand and improve the post-screening referral component of the KidSight vision screening program. The grant has supported a full-time impact coordinator who has developed relationships with eye care professionals and followed up individually with families of referred children to find eye care providers, navigate financial aid opportunities when necessary and ultimately ensure kids get the eye care they need. Support from the William J. Brace Charitable Trust allowed KidSight to extend follow-up efforts to 4 counties in the Kansas City metropolitan area in 2014-2015. In total, follow-up efforts reached 3 out of every 4 children referred by KidSight. During 2014-2015, 91% of responding parents took their child to see an eye doctor.

Saving Sight Annual Report | Page 18


KidSight Vision Screening Program

HEALTHY VISION DAY KidSight offers a preventive health service, but we also recognize that prevention of childhood vision loss begins with education. Beginning with support from the Employees Community Fund of Boeing St. Louis, Healthy Vision Day added an interactive educational component to KidSight screenings. The program provided materials to the children we screen – as well as their parents and teachers – about childhood vision health best practices. Generous support from The Columbia Foundation and the Community Foundation of the Ozarks allowed us to expand the program to Boone County and metropolitan Springfield, Missouri.

The Columbia Foundation also granted support to provide these materials online and introduce the world to our KidSight mascot, Seymour the Lion, who guides families through eye exams and healthy practices for childhood vision.

COLTON Like most children with vision problems, 4-year-old Colton adapted without any complaints. But thanks to a KidSight vision screening, Colton’s parents were able to get him the eye care he needed. Today, with his vision improving, Colton is active with children his age enjoying school, baseball, and his family. Scan the QR code to watch his mother, Kristina, recount how the KidSight screening helped change Colton’s life for the better.

Eyeglass Recycling Program

EYEGLASS RECYCLING With the help of local Lions and volunteers, Saving Sight collects and processes used eyeglasses and distributes them to people in need through its Eyeglass Recycling Program. Scan the QR code to learn how the program changes lives.

30,200 pairs of recycled glasses were distributed to people in need through 9 humanitarian groups in 2014-2015. Saving Sight also coordinated volunteers for a Lions eyeglass mission clinic which brought recycled glasses to 1,197 people in Toluca City, Mexico in May, 2015. “Every few minutes you would observe or hear another person see for the first time, whether it was a 3 year old or an 88 year old, and I wondered what took me so long to help,” said Doris, a Lion who volunteered on the trip. “I’m already packed and ready for the next trip . . . places to go and people ‘to see!’”

Volunteer Program

VOLUNTEERS Our volunteers dedicated nearly 4,500 hours to bring additional scope, depth, knowledge, and personal experience to our sight-saving programs. Volunteers & KidSight technicians screened 2,076 adults for glaucoma at Healthy Vision Screenings throughout Missouri.

The second annual Lions L.E.A.D. Weekend brought together 57 volunteers from across Missouri to learn about Saving Sight’s programs.

Lions and volunteers in Kansas helped carry out Saving Sight’s largest donor designation booth of the year at the 2014 Kansas State Fair in Hutchinson. Overall, 28 volunteers provided 143 hours of volunteer service to educate Kansans about organ, eye and tissue donation.

YOUR GIFT CHANGES LIVES BY SAVING SIGHT While the largest portion of Saving Sight’s revenue comes as a result of our eye bank operations, our community charitable vision programs operate thanks to generous financial donations. Our KidSight and Eyeglass Recycling programs – with budgets totaling over $350,000 – are made possible by individuals, organizations and institutions that support our mission to change lives by saving sight.
