Since 1905, Lighthouse International has led the charge in the fight against vision loss through prevention, treatment and empowerment. Our founders, Winifred and Edith Holt, blazed a trail of firsts and opened up new doors of opportunity for people without sight. Today, we’re proud to continue the Holt legacy on behalf of all those who look to the Lighthouse as a beacon of hope today — and will for many years to come.
