Know the Glow is a global nonprofit leader in raising awareness of leukocoria (the Glow) and the childhood blinding diseases it can indicate. We work globally to eliminate preventable childhood blindness through early detection and treatment of these conditions.

We empower parents to see their child’s vision in a new light by raising awareness about The Glow (medically known as leukocoria) and encouraging them to make sure their young children receive comprehensive eye exams by an eye specialist.
