DescriptionOur 40 years of work in eye health and vision care development have been guided by our founder, whose bold efforts have raised more than $1.3 billion in research, education and humanitarian funds. We focus on innovation in refractive error correction, the most common problem and its seemingly simple solution. In doing so, we are freed to work on resolving infrastructure and capacity challenges unique in each community we serve, applying proven best practices and breakthrough innovation to keeping care accessible and affordable for all. We continue to progress our work towards the diagnosis of eye disease and general health conditions affecting the eye through advanced, innovative and affordable equipment. We work toward this goal through science and innovation, places and people, and advocacy and collaboration.
