Operation Eyesight is an international development organization working to prevent blindness and restore sight in developing countries. We work in partnership with local governments, hospitals and community development teams, building essential resources that give all people, including the poorest, access to the help they need. We’ve developed an innovative model of hospital-based community eye care that ensures sustainable service for entire communities.
We train local women as community health workers. They conduct door-to-door surveys, screening people for vision problems and referring them for treatment as needed. They also educate communities on the importance of eye health and general health such as immunizations, nutrition, and pre- and post-natal care. Through this approach, we empower communities to take ownership of their health care needs.
