What we do

The Fred Hollows Foundation has a very clear goal: we’re putting an end to avoidable blindness. When this day comes, people in developing countries will get the same quality eye care the rest of the world takes for granted – and we won’t stop until this is done.

Ending avoidable blindness

Every time we restore someone’s sight, it also brings back their independence, ability to work, or get an education. Ending avoidable blindness through medication, surgery, education, prevention and training is a part of helping people out of poverty, which we see proof of everyday.
