About Us

Our Mission

Orbis is a nonprofit organization that works to prevent and treat blindness through hands-on training, public health education, improved access to quality eye care, advocacy and partnerships with local health care organizations.

How We Work

Through training, research and advocacy, we work to strengthen local eye care institutions, train eye care professionals and advocate for supportive policies to increase awareness about the importance of quality eye health. In programs supported by Orbis in 2013, we've enhanced the skills of more than 22,000 eye care professionals, and provided treatment to more than 5.7 million blind and visually impaired people.
