Our vision

We envision a world where people are no longer limited by preventable blindness and visual impairment. A world where good quality eye care is available and accessible not only to a select few, but where everyone has an equal chance to build a future for themselves with clear vision. We want to contribute to a future in which people have the opportunity to develop themselves to their full potential, are able to take care of themselves and do not have to depend on others.

Our mission

We work for people who don’t have access to quality eye care and can’t afford cataract surgery or glasses. Blind or visually impaired people can no longer work, sink even deeper into poverty and become completely dependent on their families. Children with poor eyesight are unable to keep up at school. And that is while most cases are preventable or treatable.


Eye Care Foundation likes to keep its donors and partners well informed of its activities and plans. In light of that, it is possible to download our strategic plan.

Dependent on donations

Eye Care Foundation is an unaffiliated foundation (we receive no government support) that strives to contribute to the fight against avoidable blindness and visual impairment in developing countries. The foundation also aims to contribute to raising awareness in the Netherlands on the issue of avoidable blindness and visual impairment.

Strategy plan Eye Care Foundation

Avoid unnecessary blindness.
Give people a chance at a better life.

The Eye Care Foundation helps prevent and cure avoidable blindness and visual impairment in developing countries. Eighty percent of patients with blindness can be easily cured by cataract surgery and many visually impaired people have been helped by good prescription glasses. The solution may be simple, but it is impossible without your help as a donor.
