Our goal is simple; to treat curable blindness and visual impairment by providing high quality free eye surgery and ophthalmic care for the underprivileged of Pakistan.
A network of 19 hospitals, 58 clinics, mobile units, outreach centres and screening camps enable us to treat people in deprived urban areas and remote rural villages, which have poor healthcare facilities.
The Graham Layton Trust and Layton Rahmatulla Benevolent Trust together form the largest provider of free eye care in Pakistan, having so far treated 44 million patients.
Around the world health workers are being diverted to support the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. While we are providing an emergency telemedicine service in Pakistan to help people needing emergency ophthalmic treatment, many of our dedicated staff are supporting overstretched health services around Pakistan in the fight against COVID-19.
While the pandemic progresses, we are deferring elective eye surgery, however we are committed to treating curable blindness and will reinstate the full service when it is safe to do so because people need sight to help themselves and their nation rebuild lives after the crisis.
