Diabetic Retinopathy is the leading cause of vision loss in working-age adults. Without vision, adults cannot go to work to earn an income to support themselves. They lose their independence and there is a lifetime costs of care and dependency.

In recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in the prevalence of diabetes across the world. People with diabetes are at risk of developing blinding eye conditions such as Diabetic Retinopathy, glaucoma and cataract.

There is an urgent need for investments in training medical teams to identify and effectively treat eye conditions related to diabetes.

This World Diabetes Day, support our work to raise awareness of Diabetes-related eye conditions and the need of regular eye screenings.

About the Charity

253 million people in the world are visually impaired. But 3 out of 4 of them - millions - are needlessly blind, just because they can't get the eye care that so many of us take for granted in Singapore. Orbis is an international non-profit organisation that transforms lives through the prevention and treatment of blindness. With our network of partners, we mentor, train and inspire local teams so they can save sight in their communities. We focus on training, capacity building and partnership because we know these are some of the best and most sustainable ways to help improve eye care services. By helping countries build the know-how, systems and support they need to deliver eye care to their people on their own, we work together as one to ensure no one loses their sight to a preventable or treatable disease.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
