The Prevention of Blindness Society of Metropolitan Washington (POB) was founded in 1936 to provide blindness prevention services and education programs to individuals in the greater Washington, DC area.
POB was founded on March 10, 1936 by May B. Vories and Dr. William H. Wilmer, founder of the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins University, as a seven-point program to bring eye health information to the Washington, D.C. community. Their seven points included:
