Donate Frequent Flyer Miles

Donate your frequent flyer miles to Orbis and help transport ophthalmic experts to sight-saving programs throughout the world! Just 35,000 miles could send one Orbis doctor on a trip to restore sight or prevent blindness in Africa, India, China or one of our other destinations. We gratefully accept both United Miles Plus® and Asia Miles. Here’s how:
