Mission & Profiles

Eye Fund (formerly known as Hong Kong Cataract Foundation) was registered in October 2007 as a non-profit charity (R88) approved by the Inland Revenue Department (Inland Revenue NO. 91/8616).

Since establishment, Eye Fund has been upholding the mission of “Prevent, Cure and Eradicate Blindness”, conveying the right understanding of eye care and accurate eye information to the general public.

Eye Fund has focused on people who care about their health, including the elderly, children and parents, to provide eye care service. Through regular collaboration with community organizations, health education and exhibitions are held to raise public awareness of eye health.

Over the years, Eye Fund has always adhered to the concept of giving back to the community. Since 2010, the Fund has invited Ophthalmologists, Optometrists and medical teams to implement the “Community Elderly Eye Examination” program, which has benefited more than 20,000 elderly people.

In 2016, the scheme “Brightening Action” is held for the elderly to accept funded cataract surgery and the follow-up examination. Meanwhile, in 2017, “Love Light” scheme has implemented a wider practice of our objective— curing blindness.

Today, there are already 7 ophthalmologists who had joined our volunteer medical team. We sincerely invite all eye specialists in Hong Kong to join our medical team; working together for Eye Fund and our larger community. If you are interested in joining us, please contact us immediately. Let’s work together to create a healthy and harmonious society.
