Research is vital to planning and operating cost-effective and efficient eye care projects. Without accurate research on the extent of a problem or what is already working, implementing eye care in developing countries is very difficult.
ORBIS works in partnership to create meaningful research that informs global blindness prevention for adults and children in developing countries.
Advocating for better eye health
Blindness and visual impairment are overlooked as global health issue, especially in children. In order to influence people and policy, ORBIS uses advocacy to improve understanding of the social and economic burden of blindness and push for more and better eye care in developing countries.
