Yes! I’d like to change an entire lifetime – by giving the gift of sight.

With a gift of $28 to fund eye tests and glasses, you can restore the life of a child like five-year old Somita from Cambodia.

Sony and Somita, brother and sister, were already living in poverty. Losing their vision would make life significantly harder and more dangerous for their family. Poor vision meant both the siblings were more prone to accidents and exploitation.

But a gift like the one you are about to make changed everything for this family. Their father was able to get them to a newly opened Brien Holden Institute Foundation Vision Centre in Phnom Penh. A simple eye exam and corrective eyeglasses were all it took to change their world. They could now see their beautiful village and smiling faces around them clearly.

Right now, another child like Somita is in need of an optometrist and your beautiful, life-changing gift: the gift of sight.

Optometry Giving Sight Australia has merged with Brien Holden Vision Institute Foundation.  See below for more information.

Please Note: From 1 July 2019

Optometry Giving Sight Australia is merging with its major implementing partner Brien Holden Vision Institute Foundation. Supporters of Optometry Giving Sight can continue to help people in need by supporting the Optometry Giving Sight campaign. Funds raised through this campaign will go towards child eye health promotion, accessible eye care projects and optometry development around the world.


$25 could help fund eye testing in schools, early enough to prevent blindness or other serious health conditions.

$53 can help provide low-cost glasses frames and lenses to people who might otherwise not be able to afford them.

$121 can fund the training of local optometrists in developing countries, and bring professional eye care to tens of thousands of people.

$1000 can help purchase specialist equipment for a vision centre that can provide eye health screenings to communities in need.
