For the fourth consecutive year, the Healthy Vision Association supports the work of the Himalayan Cataract Project

The Himalayan Cataract Project (HCP) came to Healthy Vision Association's (HVA) attention in 2013 after their member, Jessica Hein raised over $7,000 to advance HCP’s work in Ethiopia through her participation in Accelerate Ethiopia, a trail race and fundraising event in Ethiopia (and featured in Outside Magazine). HCP is honored to be selected again in 2018 as an HVA beneficiary, and we thank their members and leadership for helping to eliminate needless blindness in underserved areas around the world.

Healthy Vision Association (HVA) is dedicated to helping people be healthy and see well by providing access that consumers might not have through an employer to products, services and information that promote vision and overall health. For an annual fee of $18, members receive several discounts on vision-related purchases including access to the VSP Vision Care. 

Available nationwide in all but three states, VSP is the leading provider of vision benefits, covering more than 64 million Americans.HVA supports healthy vision around the world, supporting qualified not-for-profit organizations whose mission is related to helping people see well and stay healthy. A portion of members’ annual fees go to sponsoring 20 vision and health related charities that align best with the purpose of the Healthy Vision Association.

Additionally, HVA awards up to 20 scholarships of $2,500 each to students who are attending one of the 21 optometry schools in the United States and meet the criteria listed on their website.
