We aim to fight and treat the preventable
causes of blindness in the developing world. This includes
cataracts, childhood blindess, refractive errors, low vision
Our ethos is expressed in our values
of community without borders. To enhance community responsibility
as expressed in the tenets of the Alma Ata Declaration (1978)
which states that every community has some responsibility
for its health. Healthcare schemes must
be practical and acceptable to its community.
Sight 2020 Direct is a UK based charity
that was set up in 2001 by an ophthalmologist who
identified the need for good eye care services, for the underprivileged,
in the developing world.
We also operate in Malawi as
an NGO called Onani Eye Foundation.
Our motto: carpe diem – seize the day!
