About Us

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates 3.4 million Americans are either blind or visually impaired, and the number is expected to double by 2030. The National Eye Institute estimates 11 million Americans 12 and older would benefit from corrective lenses or surgery to address refractive errors, including near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatisms. Within Massachusetts, the trends are similar, but among the Commonwealth's less fortunate residents, treatment is frequently not an option. Yet it's the needy who can best benefit from the opportunities tied to good eye health. On a regular basis, bright children throughout Massachusetts suffer through the school day in silent frustration, physically unable to focus on the blackboard or on a textbook's pages. At the same time, thousands of ambitious adults are locked into their current jobs without the possibility of advancement, held back by the inability to see clearly.

Vision Coalition, Inc., doing business as Vision Coalition Massachusetts is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization led by Alan Cregg, who is legally blind in one eye and and who, as a graduate of Yale University and the Duke School of Law, understands the importance and value of education as a means to a better life. He is joined by a Board of Directors consisting of a group of concerned and dedicated professionals. Under such committed leadership, the Vision Coalition Massachusetts is dedicated to removing poor vision as an impediment to literacy, education, and a better way of life.

Vision Coalition, Inc., doing business as Vision Coalition Massachusetts, formerly Prevent Blindness Massachusetts, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization leading people to better vision since 1965.
