We’ve restored sight to millions of people
We’re a development organisation working in more than 25 countries. We help train and empower local eye doctors, nurses and health workers to create a sustainable system of care in the communities that need it most. The work we do has a very clear purpose: to make sure everyone, whether they’re rich or poor, has access to high quality, affordable eye health.
Our founder, Fred Hollows, was an internationally renowned eye surgeon and humanitarian. Fred didn’t believe in charity, he firmly believed in teaching, supporting and empowering people to help themselves. He worked tirelessly to end avoidable blindness in Indigenous Australia and around the world – and while it didn’t happen in his time, it will in ours.
Every eye is an eye. When you are
doing the surgery there, that is just as
important as if you were doing
eye surgery on the prime minister or the king.
- Professor Fred Hollows
HELP US DO MORE
Many people stay needlessly blind because they live in poverty. In developing countries, blindness denies people education, independence and the ability to work – things which can break the poverty cycle. But all this can be changed with as little as $25.

In some developing countries, this is all it takes to restore someone’s sight and significantly change their future.
With this money, up to 20 intraocular lenses can be manufactured and used in sight restoring operations.
