About Orbis

"Orbis is an international charity and leader in the global fight against avoidable blindness for nearly four decades. Our vision is to transform lives through the prevention and treatment of blindness. We work with partners in eye care teams – from health workers in rural clinics to eye surgeons in urban centres – so together, we can save and restore vision, ensuring no one has to face a life of avoidable blindness.


Our work changes the way the world sees:

  • We provide specialist training and equipment for doctors, nurses and local eye care teams.
  • We carry out screening and treatment programmes and support the distribution of antibiotics for controlling trachoma.
  • We raise awareness and inspire communities about the importance of eye health.
  • We strengthen and improve eye health services by partnering with local hospitals,  non-governmental organisations (NGOs)  and governments."
