Prevent Blindness North Carolina (PBNC), also known as the National Society to Prevent Blindness - North Carolina Affiliate, Inc., was organized in 1967 as a non-profit health agency. An independent affiliate of Prevent Blindness America (established in 1908), PBNC delivers direct service programs designed to preserve sight through screening, publications, safety, education, information and referral through volunteer efforts.
PBNC's mission is to reach people before blindness strikes.
PBNC is headquartered in Raleigh and is governed by a state-wide Board of Directors, comprised of medical specialists, business leaders, civic leaders, and educators. As essential members of PBNC, volunteers carry out programs and services at the state and local levels.

Operating on a $1.3 million budget, PBNC is a leader in vision screening and referrals in North Carolina. PBNC is primarily funded by government grants and foundations.
Additional revenue is secured through individuals, corporations, events and memberships. Through their programs more than 500,000 children and 5,000 adults are screened annually with nearly 40,000 children and more than 1,000 adults referred for additional care. With a high impact and low-cost program model, PBNC is preventing blindness throughout the state.
After 28 years of leadership and exponential program growth, the current President and CEO is retiring in late 2018. The 29-member board of directors is committed to ensuring a healthy executive transition and to positioning the organization for its next iteration of leadership.
