There is a Crisis in Sight. Around the world, blindness and visual impairment are set to triple by 2050 – unless we act now.

The world’s population is simultaneously increasing and growing older, so global blindness and visual impairment are on the rise. And conditions like cataract, trachoma, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma are continuing to destroy people’s vision and lives.

But this is not our fate. We have the solutions that can stop this crisis in its tracks – but we need your help to do so. By investing in training, technology and teamwork, we can prevent this global Crisis in Sight.

Donate before year-end 2019 to help end the Crisis in Sight and your gift will be DOUBLED by a generous Orbis supporter. That means your gift will have twice the sight-saving impact.

Together, we can prevent this crisis and help even more people see clearly in 2020.

Our Solution

We are an international non-profit with a 40-year track record of success and a reputation for leadership in the fight against avoidable blindness. We have the experience, know-how and expertise to tackle this newest challenge – the Crisis in Sight – head-on.

Here’s how we’re going to do it – with the help of our partners, volunteers and supporters like you.


Training is the best way to ensure a sustainable and lasting legacy of eye care around the world. Your support helps our team of 400 expert volunteers share their skills with local doctors and nurses, preparing them to treat and prevent blindness in their own communities for years to come.


Through remote mentoring, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and simulation, we can reach more people with better training than ever before. Your support helps us push the boundaries of technology and innovation so we can lead the way in eye care.


The power of one is strong, but the power of many is far stronger. That's why partnerships are at the heart of what we do. We work alongside everyone from governments to local hospitals and vision centers – because we'll go further together.

How We Can Win the Fight Together

Every day, our teams across the globe are working hard to help those most in need of sight-saving care. Meet the people whose lives have been transformed by Orbis, and learn how you can help prevent more adults and children going blind needlessly.
