The People of Vision event was established in 1985 by Prevent Blindness Ohio to celebrate and recognize corporations and their leaders for outstanding philanthropic works they have undertaken. The event has evolved into The People of Vision Celebration where community visionaries are invited to share with guests their personal journey in establishing a vision for their community and seeing it through to fruition. Proceeds from the event benefit the sight-saving programs and services provided by PBO in our community.

Prevent Blindness Ohio, founded in 1957, is Ohio’s leading volunteer nonprofit public health organization dedicated to preventing blindness and preserving sight. It serves all 88 Ohio counties, providing direct services (vision screening, vision screening training, access to care, and education) to 1,000,000 Ohioans each year. However, thousands of Ohioans still lack access to comprehensive eye care, and the number of aging Ohioans continues to grow.  These factors, coupled with the current economic situation, require that PBO continues to expand its eye health and safety services in Ohio.
