One child goes blind each minute and one adult every five seconds. Yet 80% of blinding diseases are avoidable. The OPC fights to protect and preserve sight.

It is a recognised charity in an official working relationship with the WHO; is an active member of the global initiative Vision 2020- the Right to Sight; and is approved by the French branch of the International Committee on Fundraising Organizations ’Comité de la Charte’.
