Protecting sight

We work in low and middle income countries to treat and prevent eye conditions such as cataracts, trachoma and refractive error.

Fighting disease

We help to fight five debilitiating diseases, known as neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), that affect more than a billion people worldwide.

We work in more than 30 countries

We prevent avoidable blindness in some of the world’s poorest areas by partnering with local communities, governments and other groups.

As part of our work in these countries, we distribute treatments to protect against disease, carry out operations and eye examinations, strengthen health systems and advocate for people with disabilities.

Our main offices are in the UK, Ireland, Italy, the US and the UAE, and we also have regional offices in Senegal, Kenya and India.
