Orbis is an international nonprofit that builds strong and sustainable eye care systems globally that put treatment and prevention within reach.

We believe in a world where everyone can access the eye care they need to thrive.

Changing the Way the World Sees®

A staggering 90% of all vision loss is treatable or preventable. That equates to 1 billion people on this planet living with vision loss from avoidable causes. Nine out of ten people with vision loss live in low- and middle-income countries, and 55% are women and girls.

We believe in a world where everyone can access the eye care they need to thrive.

To combat this, we build strong eye care systems that cover the full range of eye care services — from educating people about eye health and the importance of preventive care to identifying eye conditions in the community to providing treatment and follow-up services for those who need them.

Our mission, vision, and values.

We not only improve access to eye care in the communities that need it most, but we do it in a sustainable and strategic way that leaves a lasting legacy of vision.
