IN THE FIGHT AGAINST
AVOIDABLE BLINDNESS
EVERY MINUTE MATTERS

Shockingly, across the world there are nearly 30 million adults and children who are blind – needlessly. Through our Flying Eye Hospital, expert medical volunteers, hospital partners and local eye care programmes, we have the tools and expertise to train and treat those who need our help the most.

About 285 million people are visually impaired worldwide: 39 million are blind and 246 million have low vision.

Preventable causes are as high as 75% of the total global visual impairment burden.

About 90% of the world's visually impaired people live in developing countries.

At Orbis, we believe everyone deserves the same opportunity to see the sun rise in the morning, regardless of where they are born. 

With your help and the support of our amazing volunteers, we can give people their sight back today. At the same time we can build a lasting legacy of quality eye care that will ensure no one goes needlessly blind tomorrow.
