Vision Aid Overseas aims to transform access to quality eye care in developing countries. 670 million people worldwide are unnecessarily visually impaired because they do not have spectacles – this accounts for 10 per cent of the global population. This is mainly due to the significant lack of eye care services available in low and middle income countries. For people affected the consequences can be disadvantage and disability. Vision Aid Overseas’ vision is a world in which everyone has access to eye care and spectacles.
Vision Aid Overseas’ work is focused on improving the lives of people who are marginalised by poor eyesight and motivated by our belief that good vision should be a right for all, not just those who can afford it.
