Worldwide, 217 million people have moderate to severe vision impairment, but over 80 per cent of these cases can be prevented or cured (WHO, 2017). The want of simple treatment and surgery is causing millions to go blind or live with low vision, particularly in the developing world. Ophthalmologist Andrew Bastawrous is determined that should change.

He is co-founder and CEO of Peek, comprising charity Peek Vision Foundation and limited company Peek Vision, which develops and manufactures medical devices and products. All profits go towards extending eye care capacity in developing economies.
