Company Description

Our vision is of a world where no one is blind from avoidable causes, and where people with disabilities can participate equally in society.

We treat eye conditions such as cataracts and tackle debilitating diseases, many of which cause sight loss. To do this, we work with governments and local, national and international partners to carry out eye operations and distribute treatments where they’re needed.

We also advocate for the rights of people with visual impairments and other disabilities, and help to improve local health services so they are sustainable.

We have more than 70 years of experience behind us, and we’re proud to be a leader in our field. Our programmes consistently achieve high performance ratings from the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.

What we do

Protecting sight

We prevent sight loss and avoidable blindness in some of the poorest parts of the world by treating conditions such as cataracts and refractive error.
Our work to protect sight

Fighting disease

We help to treat and prevent five debilitating diseases that affect more than a billion people. These are known as neglected tropical diseases.
About the diseases

Disability rights

We promote equal opportunities and we campaign for disability rights so everyone has the chance to receive an education and earn a living.
