Our Mission

To prevent blindness and restore sight.

Our Vision

Elimination of avoidable blindness.


For All The World To See


Operation Eyesight Universal is an international development organization working to eliminate avoidable blindness with the help of donations from people like you, and support from service clubs, foundations, corporations and governments.

Based in Canada, we’ve brought sight-restoration and blindness-prevention treatment to millions of people since our founding in 1963. Today, our work is focused in Ghana, Kenya, Zambia, India and Nepal – places where blindness can be deadly, especially to those who are very young, old or poor.

We work in partnership with local governments, medical professionals and community development teams, building essential resources that give all people, including the poorest, access to the help they need. We’ve developed an innovative model of hospital-based community eye care that ensures sustainable service for entire communities.

What People Are Saying

"I have been a supporter for over 30 years. I can imagine how devastating the loss of eyesight must be. If everyone restored eyesight to just one person a year, what a difference this would make. We are just doing our small part in helping those who so desperately need it."

"Operation Eyesight does excellent work in places we will never get to. I know that every bit makes a big difference."

"I believe eyesight is a beautiful connection to the world and if there is a chance that someone’s eyesight can be restored or retained, I like to be part of it. "

— Operation Eyesight donor

"I appreciate seeing the people who Operation Eyesight helps, as we never can fully imagine their lives and the importance of eyesight."

— Operation Eyesight donor

"Eyesight is so important to people’s independence. I think it is so neat that it’s possible to restore somebody’s eyesight with a short and relatively cheap operation."
