Get Smarter. Give Smarter.
The holiday season can be overwhelming as there are so many causes to give toward. This year, Orbis urges you to Get Smarter and Give Smarter—learn about visual impairment and give your support towards helping those who are visually impaired across the globe.
Imagine your world in complete darkness—that’s the reality for 285 million people around the world who suffer from visual impairment. The good news is that 80% of visual impairment is avoidable or curable. That’s why Orbis does the work we do. We look to a future where communities around the world have sustainable eye care infrastructure and trained eye care professionals — and we know that together we can make this vision a reality.
Recently, Orbis conducted a survey* that revealed a major lack of knowledge about global eye health in the U.S. which presents a major opportunity to help educate people about the issue of visual impairment and how you can help make real change.
