ORBIS is a non-profit organisation dedicated to eliminating avoidable blindness in developing countries.
Since 1982, we’ve been to over 90 countries, trained 385,000 health care professionals and provided eye care to more than 15 million people. But there are still 39 million blind people in the world – and 80% don’t need to be. That is why, with the help of over 500 medical volunteers and our unique Flying Eye Hospital, we train eye care specialists in developing countries to prevent and treat avoidable blindness, allowing people to work, children to go to school and potentially break free from the cycle of poverty.
