Our projects supporting vision and affordable eyecare aim to provide access to the 2.2 billion people around the world who suffer from poor vision. 165 million of these people do not have access to medical interventions that could improve their sight, and it’s estimated that over 1 billion people could be helped with a simple pair of glasses.

Through my campaigning work with global initiatives that I have founded – Clearly, Vision For A Nation and Adlens – and others I have funded and supported, including Peek Vision, EYElliance, the Vision Catalyst Fund and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness, we have found that poor vision is not just a healthcare issue.  

Since 2021, one of the most important results achieved by my advocacy campaigns was the adoption of the United Nations General Assembly Resolution on Vision – the first of its kind – in 2021. It commits all 193 countries of the UN to tackle preventable vision loss and ensure eye care for everyone by 2030, demonstrating how vision correction is a golden thread that contributes to the achievement of many of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

DRIVE: Vision Research Trials

The research trials programme looks to demonstrate the impact of vision correction and eyecare, from productivity to mental health and financial independence, establishing vision as an imperative to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.


A campaign to help the world see clearly, so that everyone can reach their full potential with affordable access to glasses.

Vision for a Nation

Vision For A Nation Foundation is an award-winning sight charity, bringing primary eye care to the world’s poorest communities.


Adlens are pushing new technologies in vision, they are perfecting the interfaces between the real and virtual worlds, eyes and the brain.
