About Vision Aid Overseas

Vision Aid Overseas (VAO) is a UK-based charity, with a focus on fighting
poverty by transforming access to eye care services in developing countries in
Africa. The charity was established in 1985 following a visit of British
optical professionals to Tanzania where they held a series of clinics to
provide eye tests and spectacles to patients in poor and marginalised

Our work focuses on the development of services for uncorrected refractive
error and primary eye health. Uncorrected refractive error is the world’s
leading cause of avoidable visual impairment, with an estimated 670 million
people affected worldwide.

We develop programmes that integrate training, primary eye care and facility
developments into national and regional eye care plans, seeking always to be
responsive to local need. In this way, we help children to learn and adults to
earn so that they can provide for their families.
