As the global leader in eye care, Alcon’s dedication to preserve, restore and enhance vision is seen around the world. A clear philosophy drives Alcon’s work to overcome the barriers that stand between people and better vision. Through the Alcon Foundation and corporate giving efforts, we are enhancing sight and enhancing lives by supporting efforts to make quality, sustainable eye care more accessible abroad and at home.
Each year, Alcon supports approximately 600 medical missions and numerous partnerships with non-profit organizations to raise awareness of eye health education, train local physicians to perform state-of-the-art surgery, and bring much-needed eye care treatments and services to places where it doesn’t yet exist.
For example, Alcon partners with Orbis, whose Flying Eye Hospital provides hands-on training to local eye care specialists while treating patients in some of the world’s most under-served areas. Together, Alcon and Orbis work to deliver sustainable eye care solutions that make a long term impact in the fight against preventable blindness.
