Open Your Eyes
Provide life-changing eye care to needy people in developing countries
Shine a light in the dark
Globally, there are 285 million people suffering from visual impairments.
Penny Appeal’s Open Your Eyes programme is working to bring quality eye care to people in hard to reach areas throughout the developing world. With eye checks, medication, glasses and even simple eye operations, we’re restoring the sight of thousands of people.
You can prevent and treat blindness by supporting our Open Your Eyes mobile eye camps. Healthcare specialists at each campsite diagnose and treat the causes of avoidable loss of sight. They provide medicines, glasses and even carry out simple operations, restoring sight for hundreds of children and adults.
