Help end preventable blindness around the world.

Fred Hollows had a vision. A world where no person is needlessly blind. For everyone, no matter whether they're rich or poor, to have the right to high quality and affordable eye care.

Many people are blind because they don’t have access to quality and affordable eye care. Since The Fred Hollows Foundation began, we’ve restored sight to more than 2.5 million people.

4 out of 5 people who are blind don’t need to be. Eye diseases like cataract, trachoma and diabetic retinopathy can lead to blindness when, in fact, they're either treatable or preventable.

Do you know what percentage of the world’s visually impaired people live in low-income countries? Or how to treat avoidable blindness? Take the quiz and find out!

As an added incentive, if you are able to answer all the questions correctly, you’ll go into the running to win a $500 shopping voucher. So, what are you waiting for, take a few minutes out of your day to gain some insight into preventable blindness across the globe.

About The Fred Hollows Foundation

The Fred Hollows Foundation was founded in 1992 by eye surgeon Fred Hollows and his wife Gabi. The Foundation focuses on treating and preventing blindness and vision problems. The Foundation now works in more than 25 countries and has restored sight to over 2.5 million people worldwide. This couldn’t have been achieved without the overwhelming support of the Australian public. We’re as determined now as ever to end avoidable blindness. Four out of Five people who are blind don't need to be – there remains so much to do.

Fred's work continues very much in the way it started: by just getting on with it. The Foundation trains doctors, nurses and healthcare workers, distributes antibiotics, raises money for much needed equipment and medical facilities and performs eye operations exactly like the ones Fred did more than 30 years ago.

When someone's sight is restored, it gives them the chance for a brighter future. They're able to work, go to school and provide for their families. Fred believed that everyone, no matter whether they were rich or poor, had the right to affordable eye care. Our work won't stop until the injustice of avoidable blindness is eliminated in Australia and in the rest of the world.

We believe this can one day be accomplished.
