HCP Cure Blindness aspires to cure global blindness, one patient at a time. Through surgical outreaches, ophthalmic training opportunities, and medical equipment procurement, we bring sight to the needlessly blind and reliable eye care systems to remote, low-income communities throughout South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.

The World Health Organization estimates that 180 million people suffer from severe visual impairment (legally blind, by U.S. standards). The leading cause of blindness throughout the world is cataracts and 90% of this blindness is found in the developing world.


HCP Cure Blindness has developed highly-efficient approaches in each of the critical areas of surgery, training and education. Through high-volume surgical campaigns, thousands of people regain their sight each year and many more are screened for preventable eye-related diseases. We train local eye care teams to build sustainable infrastructure to maintain quality eye care in remote regions indefinitely and procure equipment to be sure people in remote areas are receiving the best possible care.

Long-Term Impact

The suffering caused by blindness deeply affects the family of each unfortunate, blinded individual, especially in remote regions of developing countries. With restored sight, many people return to work and to traditional roles in their families and societies.
