Who we are
Our vision is of a world where no one is blind from avoidable causes, and where people with disabilities participate equally in society.
What we do
We treat and prevent eye conditions such as cataracts, trachoma and refractive error.
We help to fight five debilitating diseases that affect more than a billion people around the world.
We campaign for disability rights so people with disabilities can participate equally in society.
Who we do it for
We prevent sight loss and avoidable blindness in some of the poorest parts of the world by treating conditions such as cataracts and fighting debilitating eye diseases.
We promote equal opportunities for people with disabilities, and we campaign for disability rights so everyone has the chance to receive an education, earn a living and be happy.
We work with governments around the world to tackle the problems at the root of avoidable blindness, and we work with local communities to support people who need it most.
