    The Fred Hollows foundation has been working with the Tilganga Institute in Nepal to eradicate preventable blindness for over 30 years. Their laboratories develop affordable eye prostheses and lenses which are sent to developing countries all over the world to combat blindness. In 2014 there were over 14,000 surgeries to restore blindness in the Nepal Institute alone.
