Vision is our mission. Restoring vision to people in developing nations is our cause. We are an organization with a focus on empowering local physicians and creating a sustainable solution to the blindness epidemic. Since 1986 Charity Vision has provided over 375,000 charitable surgeries to people suffering from needless blindness. We have built local networks in over 25 different countries and we average about 36,000 new sight procedures every year. The secret of our success lies with our local physician partners throughout the world. We provide our skilled local physicians with the surgical equipment and supplies they need to be successful. They provide their talent and time at no cost. The result is a network of developing health services systems that perform charitable surgeries free of charge.
