A cataract operation can cost as little as £20. The more people who sign up to CatarAction, the more people will receive the life-transforming gift of sight. By coming together, we can change the way the world sees!

When you sign up, we’ll send you three updates a year, which you can choose to receive by post or email. We’ll tell you more about the work of our amazing volunteers, bringing you the stories of how your ongoing support is helping to transform lives.

Frequently Asked Questions

Click on the questions below to reveal the answers

How much does it cost to sign up to CatarAction by Orbis?

We ask for a donation of £10 a month which, over a year, represents the cost of six cataract operations for adults. However, if at any point you would like to change the amount you give, please feel free to contact us. Whatever you choose to give, a regular contribution can help achieve lasting results for people all over the world who are experiencing sight loss.

How do cataract patients benefit from my support?

Giving people the gift of sight has a huge impact, not just on their well-being but their future prospects. Your regular contributions will help provide independence and freedom for people who are currently facing a lifetime of avoidable blindness – surely there is no greater gift than that!

How are my donations spent?

Your donations will help fund the battle against cataracts and Orbis’s other sight-saving work wherever it is needed the most. At least 80% of all the money we raise in the UK goes towards the fight against avoidable blindness and the rest helps to raise further funds to make sure the fight can continue in the future.

Tackling avoidable blindness takes a comprehensive approach. The best way to make sure that people with cataracts can get the treatment they need is to address the eye care needs of their whole community and country. Your donations could help fund cataract operations while also strengthening and improving services to make sure everyone has access to quality eye care, wherever they are and whatever their condition.

Will you join with us to save as many people as possible from a life of unnecessary blindness? You can be sure that supporting CatarAction by Orbis makes the biggest possible difference by driving change at the local and national level - making improvements for people with cataracts, as well as people in their wider community with other eye conditions, and beyond.

What updates will I receive by supporting CatarAction by Orbis and how will I receive the regular updates?

We’ll send you three updates a year - in Spring, Summer and Autumn – to show you that your money is being used where it’s needed most. We’ll send you stories about people who have been treated for cataracts and tell you more about the work of our amazing medical volunteers.

You will receive the updates by post, and by email if you have chosen to hear from us that way. If you would prefer to go paperless at any time and only hear from us by email, you can contact us on the details below to let us know.

From time to time, we may also like to send you information about our wider work through newsletters and fundraising appeals. Please do get in touch to let us know if you would prefer not to receive this.
