Open Your Eyes

Provide life-changing eye care to needy people in developing countries

Millions of people with visual impairments are living in the dark, cut off from the rest of the world.

Yet simple eye checks, medicines or operations could restore their sight.

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.

Give the gift of sight

Around the world, 285 million people are visually impaired. According to the World Health Organization, 90% of these people live in the developing world and it is estimated that 80% of visual impairments can be prevented, or even cured.

In many cases, just a small eye check can make a life-changing difference; without one, many people would go blind despite there being a treatment available for them.

Give the gift of sight for just 16p a day.

Act now, before vulnerable children and adults are left in the dark for good.

The Prophet (saw) was reported to have said:

"Whoever relieves a hardship for a fellow Muslim, Allah will relieve them from a hardship on the Day of Judgement."
