At least 2.2 billion people have a vision impairment or blindness. In over 1 billion cases, these could have been prevented or have still to be addressed.
Eye health workers around the world are working tirelessly to address the global vision crisis. But the number of people with vision impairment is set to triple by 2050. To address this challenge, vision programmes will need to see more people, at a lower cost, without leaving anyone behind. Peek works with NGOs, charities, governments and eye health providers in low- and middle-income countries. Our shared goal is to use Peek’s innovative smartphone technology to improve efficiency and effectiveness and bring better vision and health to everybody.
Peek is an impact-driven organisation. Our work is always focused on the people and communities who will benefit the most from improved access to eye care.
If you would like to support the work of The Peek Vision Foundation, you can donate via the American Friends of the Peek Vision Foundation (USA) or JustGiving (rest of world). Where possible, we prefer donations to be given via these platforms as they keep our administrative costs down. If you prefer to donate another way, such as cheque or bank transfer, please contact us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
The Peek Vision Foundation is a registered charity in the UK. The Foundation wholly owns a trading company, Peek Vision Ltd. The Foundation uses its funds and profits generated by Peek Vision Ltd. to build eye care capacity where it is most needed.
36 million people worldwide are blind. Four in five of them could keep their sight with simple surgery or treatment. Millions more can't see clearly, yet need no more than a simple pair of glasses. We won't stop until everyone has been linked to the treatment and services they need.
