Vision for Everyone... Everywhere

At BHVI, we believe that sight is a fundamental right for everyone, everywhere.

We develop new solutions for vision care, especially refractive error, and work to eliminate vision impairment and avoidable blindness, thereby improving quality of life for people in need and helping to reduce disability and poverty. We are a social enterprise. We invest any revenues resulting from our work into creating scientific solutions and developing and delivering eye care and education programs around the world.


For more than 30 years BHVI has focused on creating superior modes of vision correction for the most common eye conditions – refractive errors. Myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism are refractive errors affecting distance vision and presbyopia affects near vision. Combined, these conditions impair the vision of billions of people worldwide.


The global need for vision correction has created disability and a poverty-inducing health crisis worldwide. There are more than 1.22 billion people who are blind or vision impaired simply because they don’t have access to an eye examination and a pair of glasses. We believe providing eye care for such an immense number of people requires an urgent and massive response.
