How do we ensure eye care is everywhere?

Anyone who works in the health and development sector will tell you that there is not one, singular solution to achieving universal coverage. There isn’t a magical recipe that works for the entire population. So how do we ensure eye care is everywhere?

The vision of 27 million children

Free vision care for 23,000 children to support poverty relief in rural China

450 million people in China cannot see the world clearly because they live with uncorrected poor vision. This puts them at a disadvantage which is especially true of children. A simple pair of glasses has the power to change a person’s life and create positive ripple effects on the social and economic development of a community.

Children’s vision – progress is being made.

For millions of children there are a myriad of obstacles to achieving healthy, clear vision. For some, it can be as simple as not recognising that their vision is blurry and for others it can be as complicated as accessing services hundreds of kilometres.  However, progress is being made; together we are meeting challenges and overcoming obstacles.
