Our projects around vision and affordable eyecare work to provide access to the 2.2 billion people around the world who suffer from poor vision. 165 million of these people are without access to medical interventions that could address their sight and it’s estimated that for over 1 billion people, they could be helped with a simple pair of glasses.

Through my campaigning work with global initiatives that I have both 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. Vision correction is in fact a golden thread that will contribute to the achievement of several 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.
