Changing the Arc of Global Blindness

The Himalayan Cataract Project (HCP) provides critical eye care services, training for ophthalmic professionals, and enhanced eye care infrastructure where they are needed most. HCP works with local implementing partners to serve more than 1.6 million people annually through examinations and basic treatment, including the provision of over 123,000 sight-restoring surgeries and hundreds of training opportunities for eye care personnel.

The Himalayan Cataract Project (HCP) uses the elimination of cataracts as the cornerstone to strengthening national eye care. Our model is rooted in local providers, patients, and institutions, combining direct surgical care, multi-tiered training opportunities, and structural improvements to elevate eye care in a country. Our approach is efficient: surgical teams can provide over 1,000 surgeries in one week while simultaneously teaching the next generation of surgeons, nurses, and technicians through high-volume exposure.
