A worldwide mission to cure blindness

2030 IN SIGHT is the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness’s strategic plan for the next decade. A call to action to embed vision as a fundamental, economic, social and development issue, all of which are fundamental to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

We are curing blindness and leaving a legacy of community eye hospitals in the world’s poorest communities. We’re taking our microsurgical outreach camps to Nepal, India, Indonesia, Bhutan, Myanmar, Bangladesh, North Korea, Afghanistan, Rwanda, Tanzania, Lebanon and Syria.

Curing needless blindness costs as little as $50 per patient and surgery to cure a cataract can take just seven minutes. The ripple effect of curing blindness transforms the social and economic prospect of entire communities for the better.
