How can the whole world see? That’s the question we are determined to find answers to. We have achieved incredible things. We have walked on the Moon and driven on Mars. But somewhere along the way, we forgot about one of our most fundamental senses - sight. More than 700 years since spectacles were invented, 2.5 billion people suffer poor eyesight with no access to treatment.
A world where everybody could see would be a better, fairer, more productive, happier world. We invite anybody with new ideas and a desire for change to join us.
Impacting over 2.5 billion of us, vision problems affect us more than any other disability— impeding our ability to get an education, support our families and to build a better life. Changing this starts with you.
