About Us


Who we are

Pro-sight International Eye Foundation is a non-profit organization that is focused on eliminating preventable and avoidable blindness by providing access to quality, accessible, affordable and sustainable eye care services to all.

It is an initiative of The Ophthalmic Specialists, a multi-specialty world class eye hospital founded by Ophthalmologists who understand the burden of blindness, and are passionate about changing the statistics. The hospital has been providing free eye care and surgeries and charity services in the past through its Patient Payment Support but wishes to extend this service and reach more people through its foundation.

Our goal as an organization is to accomplish the following:

  • To improve the quality of life by eliminating avoidable blindness
  • To provide a platform for combating avoidable blindness and promoting a culture of proper eye health at all levels in the society

Community Outreaches

Our community outreach which is our major programme is carried out in two folds, which are; In- community outreach and In-foundation outreach:

The In-community outreach involves our team of doctors and nurses being transported to the approved location in the community and setting up a mobile clinic where beneficiaries are screened, given medications, glasses and operated on by the doctors. This outreach involves accommodating the team in cases where the communities are distant from Port Harcourt. This outreach may vary from 2 days to 1 week.

The In-foundation on the other hand involves a part of our team coming down to the community to screen beneficiaries for surgery cases with surgery patients being our focus. In this case, the patients are booked for surgeries and transported to our facility in Port Harcourt for the surgery.

Eye health awareness campaign

In line with the saying “prevention is better than cure”, the awareness programme is aimed at educating the public on the need for proper eye care, regular eye checks and the impact, symptoms and predisposing factors of general eye diseases.

Patient payment support

This is aimed at patients who need medical attention and do not fall under the community outreach programme. The Ophthalmic Specialists has pledged 10% of its profits as support for patients who cannot afford the medical attention they require. Through this initiative, donations from partners are used to partially or wholly cover the medical bills of under privileged patients.
