Thank you for your thoughtful gift to the Illinois Society for the Prevention of Blindness. Your generosity allows ISPB to continue its vital work in preserving sight and reducing preventable causes of blindness through low vision equipment, research, and education. Once again this year we will fund over $110,000 in research grants and provide $35,000 in reimbursements for hundreds of eyeglasses and low vision aids to patients who cannot afford them.
