Why vision

We have a major opportunity for change in the lives of millions of people!

Magnitude of the problem

India is home to nearly 1/4th of the world's blind population and the largest number of blind children.

People don't deserve to suffer when there is a solution

Over 75% of all visual impairment can be prevented or treated. That means millions of adults and children would be able to see today if they had received treatment, surgery or just a pair of glasses - the kind of care that many take for granted.

Investment in eye care is cost-effective

While the scale of the problem is large, giving vision to people who do not have it is an achievable goal. Investment in eye care services is cost-effective, and it continues to benefit people and entire economies for generations.


For every $1 invested in eye care services, an average of $4 of economic gain is generated. In the larger picture, supporting the elimination of preventable blindness is estimated to add $517.1 billion into the poorest of economies, in just over 10 years.

It's more than vision!

Blindness has profound human, social and economic consequences. Thus, access to eye care can opens up a world of opportunities for individuals in need. It brings the priceless benefits of education, gainful employment, independence, reduced inequality among many more.

Thus, providing access to quality eye care is one of the most impactful tools to help break the cycle of poverty.
