Prevent Blindness Texas Update

Due to Hurricane Beryl our offices and team are experiencing power outages. We will respond to emails and phone calls as soon as possible once power is restored. Stay safe everyone!

Join us at an upcoming event!

Houston Eye Stroll for Vision

The Houston Eye Stroll for Vision engages families and contributors in the vision community to educate and bring awareness to the importance of eye health. We focus on who PBT is, what we do, and how we do it in communities across the state. The audience is the public at large, professionals in the vision space, and those who encourage vision health at any level.

This year we added a virtual walker option! That’s right you can stroll with us from anywhere and support us in our mission to prevent blindness and preserve sight.
