We need talented people to help us end avoidable blindness and improve eye health in the Pacific.

Help us end avoidable blindness

We’re inspired by the work and life of our founder, Kiwi eye doctor Fred Hollows, and his vision to provide high-quality eye care to everyone who needs it.

We work with communities throughout the Pacific to restore sight and create sustainable change. We train local doctors, nurses and health workers to deliver eye care services in their own communities, and we partner with governments to strengthen local eye care systems. We build and equip clinics, and come up with innovative ways to reach people in need — like our Mobile Eye Clinic in Fiji.

Here in New Zealand we raise vital funds to support the delivery of this work.

We treat people fairly, with dignity and respect.


We have a responsibility towards our people, partners and communities, as well as property, and information. We adhere to laws, regulations and policies that are relevant to the areas in which we operate.
