Objectives

Vision Action is a UK registered charity focused on increasing people’s access to eye care services through 1) growing, and increasing the capacity of, the eye health workforce; 2) strengthening essential services through programmes such as school screening, primary eye care, and vision centres; and 3) increasing education and awareness about the importance of good eye health. We have over 3 decades of experience working with governments to strengthen eye health services within their health systems.  

Activities

We work within existing health and education systems with local buy-in and understanding from communities and government stakeholders, to ensure services can be sustained in the long-term.  In the last decade we have trained over 2,500 health workers, screened over 1.2 million people for eye conditions and helped over 165,000 people get life-changing glasses, enabling them to see clearly once again.
