Dr. Paul Berman, a dear friend of Prevent Blindness, passed away unexpectedly over the weekend. The founder of both Special Olympics Opening Eyes and the Coalition to Prevent Sports Eye Injuries, Paul had a passion for protecting the sight of young athletes – a passion that contributed to Prevent Blindness’ own work around sports eye safety. He was a true collaborator, reaching out to engage all those interested in his heart’s mission. He will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends all over the world.
