Our Focus:

The focus of the Save Our Sight Fund is to provide early detection of vision problems and the promotion of good eye health and safety.

When Ohioans apply for or renew their license plates, they will be asked if they want to contribute $1 to the fund and it will be added to their fee.

Money raised:

1.     Protective eye-wear for youth sports and school activities and preventing eye injuries 

2.     Support to children with amblyopia (lazy eye) through the Ohio Amblyope Registry

3.     Vision screening of children through training and equipping of screeners

4.     Eye health and safety programs for our schools

Thanks to the generous donations of Ohio vehicle owners, the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles and the staff of the local deputy registrar agencies, the Save Our Sight program has reached hundreds of thousands of children in Ohio.

This interactive map is updated annually and allows you to view yearly Save Our Sight programming in each county in Ohio.

Save Our Sight funds are awarded to qualifying nonprofit organizations that can offer vision services in all counties of the state and have demonstrated experience in the delivery of vision services. Proposals are submitted in February to ODH through an established grant process and are awarded yearly in April.
