Humanitarian Good

Most of us can’t imagine what it would be like living our lives blind. But that is the reality for millions of people. Cataracts is the leading cause of blindness worldwide, accounting for nearly 22 million cases. And yet, it’s completely treatable. At Monson Vision we believe that the ability to see is one of life’s most precious gifts and we want to do our part.
In 2011, Dr. Bryan Monson founded the organization Insight Humanitarian. This program provides a stable platform to engage ophthalmology surgeons, nurses, anesthesiologists and organizational volunteers with corporations and private philanthropy to provide free sight-restoring vision to the blind in developing nations. Insight Humanitarian works with proven established initiatives, on-site community-based health organizations and local physicians for long-term sustainability.
Insight Humanitarian has had the privilege to help in many countries including Napal, El Salvador, Mexico, and parts of Africa.

How You Can Help

Social Good.


After receiving ultra-modern vision restoration, many of our patients donate their now unneeded glasses to Insight Expeditions. This Fall, their gift of sight will travel nearly 10,000 miles with Dr. Monson and our team to Eswatini, Africa. We will perform sight restoring surgeries and donate needed eyewear to hundreds of deserving individuals. This region of the world lacks ophthalmology services, and it’s our little way of making the world a better place.

Simply by donating a pair of glasses, you can help change a life. By dropping off a pair of glasses you don’t need anymore, you could help a child read or an adult succeed in his or her job, and in turn, provide a community with more opportunities to grown and thrive. Together we can work together to continue giving the gift of sight.
