Why partner with Vision Aid Overseas? 1.2 billion people worldwide can’t see properly simply because they need glasses and yet 75% of all visual impairment is preventable or curable. According to the World Health Organization restoring sight is one of the most cost-effective health interventions to reduce poverty. We know this, and that is why it is our mission: "To enable people living in poverty to access affordable glasses and eye care". To our achieve our mission we focus on primary eye care, on the front-line in the community, and uncorrected refractive error, those who need glasses. We train eye health professionals and setup Vision Centres to ensure the changes we make are for the long-term. We focus on helping the poorest communities and to help children. And we do this all in partnership with, and according to the needs of, local governments and community groups.
