About Sightsavers

Our vision is of a world where no one is blind from avoidable causes, and where everyone can participate equally in society.

At Sightsavers, we start with sight, but we don’t stop there.

We treat eye conditions such as cataracts and tackle debilitating diseases, many of which cause sight loss. To do this, we work with governments and local, national and international partners to carry out eye operations and distribute treatments where they’re needed.

We also advocate for the rights of women, girls and people with disabilities, and help to improve local health services so they are sustainable.

We have more than 70 years of experience, and we’re proud to be a leader in our field. Our programmes consistently achieve high performance ratings from the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.

In the past 70 years, Sightsavers has achieved amazing things. We work in more than 30 countries to train health workers, provide eye operations, support people with disabilities, improve women’s health and more. Will you help us continue our work?
