The Lions Club of Ba has been actively involved in the SightFirst project which aims to prevent avoidable blindness in Fiji in the Ba to Rakiraki corridor. The club has screened 3000 individuals in 2012 of which 120 have been operated on by partners, Pacific Eye Institute for corrective measures. Around 500 individuals have been issued corrective eye glasses as well. The success of the project has led Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation, the sole funder of the project, to handover a sum of $15,000 for the 2013 SightFirst Project to the Lions Club of Ba.
