For over four years, Sustainable Sight Initiative (SSI) has been working with Compassion, one of our NGO partners, to interrupt the trachoma reinfection cycle. Compassion treats eye infections with EyeBath, a treatment based on an FDA approved immune system stimulant with antibacterial properties.
More than 12,000 people - over 8,000 children ages one to nine and 3,900 adults in various stages of the disease - have been treated with 100% rate of success.
No trachoma symptoms remained following EyeBath treatment. Eye health was restored to pre-infection condition in one day.
