Orbis UK is an affiliate of Orbis International, a global charity that brings people together to fight avoidable blindness. With our network of partners we mentor, train and inspire local teams to fight blindness in their own communities. We believe that no one should live a life of unnecessary blindness, simply because of where they were born.

We work where the need for eye care is greatest and where we can do the most good. In the last 32 years, we have conducted training projects in over 92 countries, over 78 with the Flying Eye Hospital. We always work closely with governments and health ministries to deliver quality eye care.

We strive for excellence in everything we do, from our world leading volunteers to our state-of-the-art Flying Eye Hospital. Only the best training and practices will be passed on.
